Walk effort for mum who faced life in a wheelchair


A woman who feared she would never walk again after being struck down with ME will be setting off on a cross country walking challenge in just a few weeks.

Teacher Elizabeth Everington will be covering around 1,000 miles from John O’Groats to Land’s End with pal and author Alec Hawkes.

They will be raising cash for several charities along the way and hope that people will get behind their 10-week effort.

The good causes are, disabled children’s charity Whiz Kids, deafblind cause Sense, WRVS, which helps older people and anti human trafficking and slavery charity A21.

The friends will cover around 30 miles a day and 50-year-old Elizabeth, who lives in Dacorum, will be raising awareness of the alternative therapy movement – the Lightning Process – which she credits with helping her get back on her feet, after facing the prospect of life in a wheelchair.
