A trio of family and friends are getting set to attempt a 62-mile trek from London to Brighton in just 24 hours.

Claire Noble and her 18-year-old son, Liam, from Roydon Close in Loughton. will raise money for a Multiple Sclerosis charity.

Mrs Noble’s sister, Jan, battled MS before she died two years ago.

Ever since, the family has raised money in her honour.

Friend Michael Webb, 20, will join them on the trek. 

All three have been practicing long distance walking at weekends to prepare.

Mr Noble, who came up with the idea, said: “I saw an advert and thought it would be a great thing to do. We raise money for The MS Society every year.

“It’s something that is actually really difficult to practice because it is such a long distance.

“We really want to raise money in memory of my aunt but it is also a great achievement to be able to say that we completed it. It is the biggest thing that I have ever done.”

The trio are hoping to raise a minimum of £500 for the event in May.
“We want to get as much money to them as possible so that less and less people can suffer from MS each year,” Mr Noble added.

“Ideally we would raise a four figure sum.”
