Fenland sisters raise over �300 for Parkinson’s research in tribute to grandfather
TWO Fenland sisters have raised more than �300 for Parkinson’s Disease research in a memorial tribute to their beloved grandfather.
Amy Munns, 15, and her sister Lucy, 12, from Emneth, decided to raise money in memory of their grandfather, Mike Fisher, who lived with the disease for many years.
A series of fundraising activities saw them complete a six kilometre sponsored walk in Wisbech Park and two car boot sales. They also collected small change at home to help them reach a grand total of �325.
Teenager Amy said: “I liked organising the car boot sales best. It gave us the chance to speak to a lot of people about Parkinson’s and about why we were raising money for research.”
Her sister, Lucy added: “The best part of our fundraising was the walk - I really enjoyed it and might try running next time.”
