Branch member Peter Charles is making fantastic progress on his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
Currently on stage 1 of his epic fundraising walk you can catch up with his progress on this page, which is updated daily on each day that he walks.
Peter is fundraising for Parkinson’s UK. The costs of Peter’s pilgrimage will be covered by sponsors. Other than the fee charged by Virgin Money Giving*, no deduction will be made from any donation – 100% will go to Parkinson’s research and respite care.
Ninety percent of donations will be used for Parkinson’s research to help find a cure for the condition. Read about the research funded by Parkinson’s UK.
Ten percent will be used by the Amersham and High Wycombe Branch of Parkinson’s UK to provide respite care, so that a family member looking after someone with Parkinson’s can take a break. Read about the Branch’s respite care scheme.
* Virgin Money Giving is a ‘not for profit’ organisation. Its fees are just enough to cover its running costs. More details.
