One final post to let you all know that we’ve counted the coppers and cashed the cheques, and you lovely lot have helped us raise over £4K for Parkinson’s UK. This excludes the tax relief which is additional, so it’s an absolutely incredible amount.
When Dad decided to do this challenge for Ron, he was originally going alone and was hoping to raise a few hundred quid, so this is beyond our wildest dreams and will make a huge difference! To put it in to context:
– £20 pays for a specialist Parkinson’s nurse for an hour
– £48 pays for 2 weeks of nutrients to grow brain cells in the lab for research
– £140 pays for 10 helpline advisers to provide support and information
So, £4K will go a very long way and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We certainly won’t be getting on a bus anytime soon, but we had a lot of fun along the way, and it was hugely satisfying to do some good for such a worthy cause.
Thanks again, and here’s a few silly photos from our journey. xxx
