Nina takes on a challenge – in memory of Carl

0

SPORTS mad Nina Walsh will be hosting afternoon tea in Warrington town centre on May 5 – and cycling the equivalent of 100 miles at the same time.
She will be holding the event in memory of her late partner, Carl Greenaway, who died tragically after a road accident – and also raising money for two charities.
The afternoon tea will be served at Bold Street Methodist Church’s coffee shop where Nina will be on her bike on a turbo trainer riding for six hours – her target time for a 100 mile ride.
Carl, aged 36, a father-of-four from Culcheth, died after a car accident in June last year – shortly after re-introducing Nina to the world of cycling. They had planned to compete in the 100-mile Manchester cycle event in September this year.
Nine, 31, said: “Carl and I never got the chance to start a family. But we had planned to marry.
“After seeing his children’s  heartbreak at losing their dad, it broke my heart even more. I am fundraising and trying to raise awareness of the fantastic charities who supported us through this very, very difficult time.
“Winston’s Wish is the UK’s childhood bereavement charity, supporting children and parents after they have lost a parent or sibling.
“Aftermath Support work with people in Cheshire, Lancashire and Merseyside who have been affected by the devastation of road traffic accidents.
“Both charities have been incredible and are supporting my fundraising activities”
Nina, like Carl, is a huge sports fan and loves running and cycling. She’s out most nights on her road bike and enjoys mountain biking in Wales. She has sky-dived twice from 15,000 ft, climbed Snowdon twice and enjoys white-water rafting.
She will be taking on the Manchester 100 in September for Carl and herself – and to raise money for the charities.
But she also loves baking cakes and Carl loved eating them – hence the afternoon tea.
Entry to the tea party will be £10-a-ticket and donations can also be given via the Just Giving website https://www.justgiving.com/teams/ninawalshteam
