Pulmonary Fibrosis is a lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for the lungs to work properly. 

Friends Cheryl and Louise embarked on their A Way of Roses route - a 170-mile journey from Morecambe to Bridlington Prom on 30th June to raise money for Sheffield Hospitals Charity's Pulmonary Fibrosis Fund. 

Cheryl and Louise are hobby cyclists but recently made the decision to embark on this mammoth bike ride and raise funds for the Sheffield Hospitals Charity Pulmonary Fibrosis fund. The fund covers research done by Sheffield-based scientists, refreshments and meeting rooms for the Sheffield Pulmonary Fibrosis Group to meet. 

The Vice Chair of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Group in Sheffield is Gordon Harrison, who is also Cheryl's stepfather. Gordon has also undergone a lung transplant within Sheffield Teaching Hospitals - so the choice to raise money for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Group was a personal one for Cheryl and Louise. 

The ladies treated themselves to a fish and chips lunch, a glass of champagne and a doughnut on the coast of Bridlington, a very deserved meal after riding 170 miles and raising an astonishing £1,607 - which is an amazing achievement as their target was to raise £250.
