Cycling from London to Greece for MS

Every 10 years or so, I get the urge to embark on some bike riding challenge to raise money for charity. I have of course tried to suppress this urge with counselling, hypnotism and patches, but despite this it still happens.

In my 50s and 60s I rode from the UK to Greece and raised £5,000 on each occasion. Now, a decade later and not being very imaginative, I again decided to ride to Greece.

Tackling the Great Wall of China for MS

Stunning scenery, giggles and blisters − the Great Wall of China trek had it all. Georgina Buckley tells us how the experience changed her life and why she'd recommend it.

My father has multiple sclerosis and I’ve fundraised for the MS Society before through sponsored runs. This time I decided to do something bigger to try and raise a lot more money.

On Tuesday, I presented the ‘Wayne Dobson and friends’ show at the world famous Magic Circle to raise money for the MS Society.
