A woman has been inspired to take on a walking challenge to raise funds for charity.

Jess Lloyd's grandad Bernie, 73, was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease last year, and next month the 27-year-old is set to walk from Wrexham town centre to Llangollen, in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).

Jess, from Rhosddu, said: "This charity means so much to myself and my family. My grandad has always been physically fit and an excellent football player in his youth, he has always made his health a priority and taken care of himself.

"He is the most incredible man, those that know him will agree that he is the most gentlest of people, with the kindest of personalities. He is unquestionably the most important man in my life and I want to take every possible opportunity to show him how important he is to me and just how loved and supported he is. He is and always will be my hero.

"Since my grandad has been diagnosed with MND I have seen first hand the heartbreaking and debilitating affects it can have.

"It is fast and simply point blank horrendous. There is no cure for this horrible disease, therefore it is vital more research is done to help find one!

"I had never heard of MND this time last year and now it has completely changed our family's life as it has for many other family's in the UK."

Jess is set to undertake the challenge on November 21, joined by family and friends.

Anyone who wishes to join her is welcome, with all donations going to the MNDA.
