Fundraising during 2019 by our members and friends

Branch members and supporters set themselves exciting challenges this year to raise funds!

Catriona Hamlet treks to Machu Picchu

In September 2019, Catriona will participate in a week-long trek through the Peruvian Andes promoted by Parkinson's UK (more details here). Please visit Catriona's JustGiving sponsorship page to learn more and support her generously in this challenging enterprise.

Martin Cowell’s Lands End to John o’Groats Support Epic

Alan Godfrey, fellow Rotarian of our committee member Martin Cowell, will cycle the 1000 miles from Land’s End to John o’Groats early in 2020, raising funds for Prostate Cancer UK. Meanwhile, Martin is serving as the support squad and he’s using that as a fabulous excuse to raise money for our Branch. You can support Martin at his JustGiving page at this link. We wish them both good weather, fair winds and successful fundraising!

To learn more about Alan’s cycle ride you can visit his website where you will also find a link to his Prostate Cancer donation page.

Christopher Casey runs the London Marathon

Chris's father David is a member of our Branch. Not satisfied with raising £4000 by organizing a spectacular fundraising ball for Parkinson's UK, Christopher ran the London Marathon on April 28th. Visit his fundraising page to sponsor him for this terrific effort.

Fifty miles in fifty days

Local Parkinson's supporter Charley James, whose father has Parkinson's, has - along with her mother and sister - embarked on the Parkinson's UK "Time to Run" challenge where non-runners commit to running a total of 50 miles in 50 days, starting on 26th February. Her fundraising page, with her story, can be found here on the Everyday Hero donations site.
