Mother Walks For Cystic Fibrosis Charity

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A MOTHER who has two children with cystic fibrosis walked 20 miles with friends and family to raise money for a charity tackling the disease.

Lisa Shaw, 32, of Station Road, marched from Wombwell to Penistone and back via Wortley and Tankersley to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

She has already collected £3,500 in previous fundraisers and is hoping her latest feat will bring the total up to her target of £5,000.

Lisa's children Grace, five, and Jacob, nine months, were both born with the genetic disorder, which primarily affects the lungs, liver and pancreas and leads to breathing difficulties. She has a third child, Maisie, three, without the condition.

"It was a big shock when we found Grace had it," said Lisa. "There's no history of the condition in my family but we knew there was a chance Jacob could have it when he was born."
