Paul is a resident at Ipswich-based Sue Ryder Neurological Care Centre The Chantry and has completed an incredible 100 laps of the building in 67 days, all to raise money for the centre where he received specialist care following surgery to remove a brain tumour that left him unable to walk properly.

The lifelong Ipswich Town FC supporter did lap number 100, the very final lap, around the outside of his beloved Portman Road Stadium, the home of his favourite team.

Paul chose the impressive target of 100 laps in 67 days laps to match his age (67) and this challenge marks the third time that he has laced up his trainers to raise funds for Sue Ryder.

The Chantry specialises in providing personalised neurological care, rehabilitation and support to people with a range of neurological conditions.

When Paul first arrived at the centre his mobility and ability to walk were severely affected. The fact that he has been able to embark on not one but three walking challenges is testament to his determination and the specialist care he has received at The Chantry.

Having put his best foot forward and completed the incredible challenge he now hopes his achievement will raise as much money as possible for the centre, which provides expert care for people with a variety of neurological conditions such as Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and acquired brain

Speaking about his challenge Paul said:
“The whole team here at Sue Ryder Neurological Care Centre The Chantry has been fantastic and I would not be where I am today without them.

The specialist care and support that I have received have been such a big part of my recovery. I am eternally grateful to them all and that is why I am taking on another challenge to raise money for The Chantry.

“Raising as much money as possible for the charity that has given me so much would mean the world to me.”
