A DEDICATED daughter has completed a 1,000-mile cycle challenge to raise vital funds for the cancer centre treating her mum.

Lisa Torbet has succeeded in her goal to cycle 1,053 miles in aid of the Beatson Centre in Glasgow who are currently looking after her 60-year-old mum and grandmother to her two children.

Lisa who took on the challenge at Netherthird gym expected it to take 10 weeks, but she was amazed to have completed the fundraiser one week early.

She even managed to get back on her bike and pedal her way to the finish line after two weeks off as the gym was closed over the festive season.

She has also succeeded in raising £1,053, with the figures in the challenge reflecting the address of the crucial care unit on Great Western Road in Glasgow.

Lisa endured the challenge, as her mum continues her brave fight against cervical cancer which has spread towards her kidneys.

On completion she told the Chronicle: “It’s really good. I finished it a week early. I’ve just got £44 to go to get to my fundraising target.

“People have been so generous its been great. The gym was shut for two weeks over Christmas and New Year, but I just went and did as many extra miles each week as I could and managed to finish the challenge one week early.”

“Its really helped me a lot, I’ve got asthma as well and its made me feel better with that.”

Lisa has been inspired by the challenge and is hoping to take on more like it to raise money for the Beatson, a place she has high praise for.

And she feels determined to keep raising awareness of the centre and doesn’t want anyone to give up in finding a cure.

She said: “I would definitely like to raise money for them again. There’s just so many people I hear or I know through family and friends who have cancer.

“It’s hitting too many people. It would be great to find a cure someday.

“They need all the money they can get to help people. The staff are great up there. It’s really laidback, they make everyone feel like a person and not just a patient.”
