Charlotte Lawson, whose mother has Parkinson’s, set herself a challenge last year to ride around (safely outside) the M25 in one day in July. She achieved this and raised over £2,000. This year she decided to set herself another test: to ride her bicycle 5,000 miles between January and December and raise £2016. She’s achieved the first target three months early and at the moment she is only a few hundred pounds off her financial goal. This adds up to over £3,500 for the branch and Parkinson’s UK in just over a year. And the pot is still growing as more supporters contribute.
She is determined to reach the magic sum as soon as possible. She is a Senior Lecturer at the Royal Veterinary College, so if you find yourself invited to a cake sale in Brookman’s Park or a tea party in Camden Town it’s all in a good cause.
