After originally setting a target to cycle 50 miles by the end of June during lockdown, Lucy’s target was then moved to 75 miles and she still isn’t stopping!! Well done Lucy, you are amazing!! Please see the link below to donate:
‘’We have donated to this brilliant little girls cause! Lucy from Eccleston has challenged herself to cycle 50 miles in 25 days to raise money for Parkinsons UK. Can you help Lucy?’’
WE HAVE MOVED THE TARGET FROM 50 MILES TO 75 AS WE COMPLETED 50 MILES IN 7 DAYS!!!!
For those of you who have forgotten me as they’ve not seen me for a while, my name is Lucy and I am 6 years old and during lockdown I have had lots of opportunities to ride my bike around where I live. What I haven’t had the opportunity to do is see my grandad who is being well cared for at Paradise House care home. You might know that my grandad has Parkinson’s disease. This means he can’t run about and play with me and sometimes he can’t talk to me but I still love him lots and I really miss him.
I have decided that I want something good to come out of lockdown. Although mummy and daddy say grandad may never be cured, I want to help other people with Parkinson’s disease. I actually want to be a neuroscientist when I am older to do just that! I also want to help the residents in the care home where he lives continue to have fun.
I am therefore going to put my cycling skills to the test and will try to complete 50 miles cycling by the end of the month of June 2020. That gives me about 25 days to pedal my little legs off! Any money I raise will be donated to two special places.
The first will be ‘Parkinson’s UK’ who support and help families who have experience of Parkinson’s disease and also research and try to find medicines and cures to get rid of this horrible disease.
The second is to the ‘Residents Fund’ at Paradise House Care home where my grandad is so well looked after. It is a super place where grandad gets everything he needs and the money raised means they will be able to have special treats and special days.
