Determination to find a cure for Parkinson’s Colin’s successful Cycle ride raises £700 for Parkinson’s UK

Southport resident Colin Melling was determined to raise funds for further research into the cause and a possible cure for those many Parkinson’s sufferers, about 127,000 in the UK alone, by cycling from his home in Ainsdale to Tarleton and back to Ainsdale.

Although Colin has great difficulty walking he successfully cycled the 30 miles with great enthusiasm and self  discipline following months of training.

His effort raised £700 towards research into this progressive neurological condition. This included very generous donation from his family and friends and even a diner he met after completing the cycle.

Colin completed the ride on his own with a car as back-up which he did not need.

Parkinson’s UK are hoping to raise enough funds to support research that may well bring about the long awaited cure.
