Walk for Parkinson’s

Around 157 walkers completed a 4.5 mile circular walk around Cowdray to raise money for Parkinson’s.

The walk started at Benbow Pond on Sunday 9th July, and passed through woodland and fields with spectacular views as well as through the scenic Cowdray Golf course and past the polo pitches.

Parkinson’s UK hopes to raise £8,000 from the event.

Jenni Green, Regional Fundraiser for Parkinson’s UK in West Sussex, said: “Thank you to everyone who walked and volunteered at Cowdray to help make it such a fantastic day.  We were so lucky to have such brilliant weather and I hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as I did!

“All money raised from Walk for Parkinson’s will help us to provide support and information for people affected by Parkinson’s and to help find better treatments, and ultimately a cure.”

Jonathan Russell, Cowdray CEO, said: “We were delighted to assist Parkinson’s UK with this brand new Walk for Parkinson’s, and we were pleased that walkers enjoyed the beautiful locations around Cowdray, including the Cowdray Heritage site and Cowdray Golf.  We hope that the Walk for Parkinson’s at Cowdray will become an annual fixture.”

Walk for Parkinson’s – Cowdray is one of a series of 32 sponsored events being held across the country to raise money for this worthwhile charity.
