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.
