In 2007 our Accounts Manager, Carol, was diagnosed with the progressive neurological condition, Parkinson’s disease. Since then she has had to contend with and has overcome many hardships in her life including reduced mobility which prevents her from taking part in all the sporting activities she enjoyed prior to her diagnosis. When Carol signed up for the 2.5 mile Walk for Parkinsons at Welford Park, Newbury we were all really proud of her as we know that for her this length of walk is a real challenge and is the equivalent of us undertaking a marathon! It took incredible effort and determination by Carol to do this.
Sadly, there is currently no cure for Parkinson’s and fundraising activities such as these are vital for funding the research needed to find a cure. With our match funding Carol raised £3,520 for Parkinsons UK.
Well done Carol from all of us!
