Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In June 2024 I'm walking over 500 miles across the widest part of England - from the most westerly point of Land's End to the most easterly point of Ness Point in Lowestoft.

This will involve walking continually for 30 days and wild camping most nights (apart from the odd hotel room and campsite so I can wash my clothes and myself!) I will be completely self-supported and will be carrying all of my gear - including camping gear - on my back.

Although I am a keen walker, I have never attempted anything like this so it will be a huge challenge for me.

I'm taking on this challenge to raise funds for Parkinson's UK. Parkinson's is the fastest-growing neurological condition in the world - currently around 153,000 people worldwide live with it.

Contrary to popular belief Parkinson's isn't just an older person's disease - many younger people are diagnosed each year too. Symptoms of Parkinson's include tremors, stiffness, pain, extreme fatigue, slowness of movement, memory issues and problems with sleep patterns. Parkinson's affects every part of someone's life.

Parkinson's UK is working tirelessly to find a cure and to improve life for the Parkinson's community.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

I know things are tight for everyone right now but just a couple of pounds will help make a difference - or if you can't afford to give then sharing my page would be greatly appreciated.

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.
