BUSY mother-of-three Corinne Boyle is about to embark on the biggest challenge of her life.

In June she will be travelling to Hungary to take part in the Euro Bike Ride for Scope, the charity for people with cerebral palsy.

Corinne, aged 42, of The Park, St Albans, will be travelling through three countries in three days starting off in Budapest, going on to Slovakia then finishing up in Vienna, Austria.

She chose Scope because her 12-year-old son Conor suffers from cerebral palsy and she is grateful for all the help she and her family have received from the charity.

Corinne said: "I am taking this challenge very seriously as I do not want to let my sponsors down. I know that I will have to be very fit so I am training three times a week, cycling and running in addition to my normal exercise at the gym."

Her husband Ray has accompanied her as he is an experienced long-distance cyclist.

Corinne also has two younger children - Sean aged 11 and Josephine aged six.

She has raised £1,650 so far for Scope. You can sponsor Corinne by visiting her website - www.justgiving .com/scopecorinneboyle

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
