My story

[p]My name is Simon Coates, and between 1st March 2021 and 31st October 2021 I will be undertaking the challenge to hike 2000 miles in aid of 16 charities whose work is close to my heart. I am aiming to raise at least £1000 for each of the charities I am supporting, and these funds will make a real difference in enabling the charities to continue their work and survive the extremely challenging times we find ourselves in.[/p][p]You can find out more about the challenge and keep track of how I am getting on on my website ([url=][/url]), by joining the challenge Facebook group ([url=][/url]) or by following me on Twitter ([url=][/url]).[/p][p][b]Parkinson's UK - Oxford Branch[/b][/p][p]Parkinson’s is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world. It can mean you can’t move. Can’t eat. Can’t remember. Can’t sleep. With support, we can slow. Can stop. Can reverse. Can cure. We can do. But we can’t do it without you.[/p][p]They’re close to major breakthroughs. Funding the right research into the most promising treatments, they get closer to a cure every day.[/p][p]Until then, they're here for everyone affected by Parkinson’s. Fighting for fair treatment and better services. Making everyone see its real impact.[/p][p]No one should face Parkinson’s alone.[/p][p]You can donate to this campaign in aid of Parkinson's UK - Oxford Branch between 25th February 2021 and 31st January 2022, and anything you can donate will give invaluable support to allow the charity to continue their work.[/p][p]If you would prefer to send a cheque to the charity, you can write to them at the following address - please do include a cover note telling them your donation is as a result of my hiking challenge:[/p][p][b]Parkinsons Disease Society (Oxford Branch), 2 Rimmer Close, Old Marston, Oxford, OX3 0PB[/b][/p]
