Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS - BY SHAUNA CORR

A WO­MAN and her “Blis­ter Sis­ters” will set off on a 50-mile trek on Satur­day in hon­our of a friend with mo­tor neu­rone dis­ease.

Joanne Hall, 49, from Bal­ly­nahinch, set her­self a chal­lenge of walk­ing the dis­tance be­fore she turns 50 in De­cem­ber.

The Co Down wo­man set up a What­sapp group for those who wanted to join – and it’s grown into a Face­book group of al­most 100 peo­ple.

Joanne said: “My friend Wil­lie An­nett was di­ag­nosed with MND.

“The Blis­ter Sis­ters came out of me telling pals what I planned and they said, ‘We’re do­ing it too’.”

The group will leave from CS Lewis Square in East Belfast to Por­tavo­gie, and back the next day.
