A Comrie man is hoping to raise more than £3,000 for Parkinson’s UK when he cycles from Newcastle to London in August.
Peter Halley, 38, said: “My mum has been living with Parkinson’s Disease since 1999.
“It is a horrible disease and it has affected each member of our family in all sorts of different ways. I would like to do my bit and help raise some money for Parkinson’s UK because every penny may edge us closer to finding a cure for this unforgiving disease.”
Paul Jackson-Clark, director of fundraising at Parkinson’s UK, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Peter for his support and I hope he enjoys his experience.”
