Lisa, who works at Eyemouth Co-op, completed the six-day ride last week raising money towards the building of a palliative care hospice at Pokhara, which currently has nowhere for people with terminal illnesses to die in peace.

All Lisa’s expenses have already been taken care of and all money from the fund-raising appeal will go towards building the hospice.

Eyemouth Co-op has had a collection bucket at the tills, cake and candy stalls and a quiz night have raised hundreds and Eyemouth Parish Church and others have been generous.
