Paddle for Parkinson’s….SLYPN & Spotlight YOPD at the Anglers…….It was lovely to see some old and new faces at The Anglers, as well as meeting Billy from Spotlight YOPD, Tracey Parkie & Ann Martin from Kings College Hospital & then catching-up with Phil Bungay from Medway & District Working Age Group and the Cure Parkinson’s Trust on Sunday, 21 August. It was a tough weekend for rowing, but it was a fantastic way of getting us all together and showing our support in all our different fundraising and social events!
Darren Taylor (Founder of Spotlight YOPD), Barry Hayes, John McPhee and Tracy Parkie rowed down the River Thames, which is about 130 miles from Lechlade to Putney, completing the course over four stages.
This celebration took place after stage three and was in The Anglers. We reserved an area in the beer garden, and at 4pm we went down to the Lock and gave the rowers a warm welcome after finishing their third day out of four!! Then we headed back to the pub!
