We are powered by people. We’re here to find a cure and improve lives, together.


Sandra’s mother was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2006 and the condition steadily worsened such that she is now in a care home.

There was no local support for sufferers or their family so Sandra got a group established here in Orkney in 2011.

One of the aims of the group is to raise funds for the charity, Parkinson’s UK, and they have held a variety of events.


My trek round the British coastline will hopefully raise both awareness and funds to support the charity.


I will be starting on 30 March 2013 from Withernsea on the East Yorks coast, heading north, walking anti-clockwise.

My aim is to complete the walk in one go, with just occasional short rest breaks. The distance will be in excess of 6,000 miles and should take me 14-15 months to complete.

You can follow my progress on my website

Anyone can get Parkinson’s. It gets worse over time and there’s no cure. Yet. Funding research into the most promising treatments, we’re getting closer to a cure. Until then, we're improving life for people with Parkinson’s, and the people in their lives. Together we'll find a cure.
