Gareth Thomas MP Presents Cheque to Parkinsons UK

Local MP for Harrow West Gareth Thomas has presented a cheque for £1,600 to Parkinson’s UK’s Harrow branch after completing three triathlons over the summer.

Gareth surpassed his original target of £1,000 and was delighted to meet other Parkinson’s UK fundraisers when he recently visited the charity.

Gareth met Mary Reid who raised £1600 by doing a sky dive in April and John Brothwell who raised £850 by organising a golf tournament at his golf club. Both are members of Harrow Parkinson’s UK and both have Parkinson’s.

Gareth Thomas MP said: “I’m delighted to be able to present this cheque to the Harrow branch of Parkinson’s UK. This local team do excellent work and I’m sure the funds raised will go to good use in the community. I particular enjoyed meeting some of my fellow fundraisers, Mary’s skive dive and John’s golf tournament are great examples of the fun that can be had in raising money for a good cause.”
