Sue Hayman MP, Member of Parliament for Workington, has raised over £1000 for the MS Society by undertaking the 16 mile 10-in-10 Challenge, the charity fell walk, last Saturday.

Sue and her husband, Ross, hiked 10 Cumbrian fells in 10 hours, raising money for much-needed research into Multiple Sclerosis, which affects more than 100,000 people in the UK. Together, they raised £1011.81, including a donation from Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and Sue’s colleagues in the Labour Shadow Cabinet.

Sue said: “I’m proud to have been able to raise more than £1000 for the MS Society, which is double our fundraising target. It was a hot day, but Ross and I tackled the ten peaks from Newlands to Buttermere and back.

“Thank you to everyone who supported us, and well done to everyone who took part in the Challenge on Saturday alongside us.”
