The founder and chairwoman of a Cambridgeshire charity that supports people living with long-term neurological conditions has stepped down after seven years.
Linda Neate first set up Pos+Ability in 2012 to offer chair-based exercise and one-to-one support to people living with conditions such as Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis and Muscular Dystrophy.
Members of the charity gathered last week to thank Linda for her work and to wish her a happy retirement.
She will remain as an ambassador for Pos+Ability after raising more than £200,000 for charity through the years.
Lady Ava Paice, president of the charity, said: "Linda has been instrumental in the development of our services.
