Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Since being diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2021 I decided to set myself a challenge incorporating my hobby of bell ringing with an attempt to ring the heaviest bell at Worcester Cathedral to a peal. A peal is continuous ringing for a sustained period of time (approximately 4 hours), something that I, or anyone that has a Parkinson diagnosis has never completed before on a bell of this size.

Through doing this I wish to raise money for Parkinson's UK who do amazing research and support for anyone living with this disease.

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.
