Over the recent May bank holiday weekend siblings Ella and Magnus with friends Ethan and Arni (aged 8, 9, 10 and 11) raised an amazing £67.50 for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust’s (CPT) pioneering research into a cure for Parkinson’s.

The fantastic four (pictured above) decorated and personalised pebbles collected from the beach one afternoon in Mudeford, Dorset. Their father Mark Tyrrell said:

“Passers-by were drawn in by Ethan’s sales technique and wowed by Ella and Arni’s artwork whilst Magnus kept a close eye on the running total and chocolates! Their grandad Andrew, a staunch supporter of CPT, was bowled over when he heard the news of their success!”

Diagnosed with Parkinson’s 11 years ago Andrew (pictured below) is a friend and long-term supporter of CPT’s work. He has supported the charity in numerous ways from taking part in focus groups to guide and shape research, to attending events on behalf of the charity and selling raffle tickets at the annual Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon.

CPT would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to the Tyrrell family for their incredible support and fantastic fundraising efforts over the years – we are hugely grateful.
