Martin and friends walk the Dalesway for Parkinson’s UK

In 2016 he walked 200 miles across England and in 2017 he hiked the West Highland Way and climbed Ben Nevis.

Now Martin Turner of Oxted, the former Sky Sports Head of Formula 1 and friends has successfully walked the Dalesway, 85 miles from Ilkley in Yorkshire to Bowness on Lake Windermere to raise money for Parkinson’s UK.

Three and a half years ago Martin was diagnosed with this incurable neurological disease and inspired by his great friend and fellow sufferer, darts tv presenter Dave Clark and the support of his wife and tireless Parkinson’s campaigner, Mandi, he says he is determined to keep the pressure on to find a cure.

Martin, Mandi, Dave and friends set off on the Dales Way walk on Sunday, September 9 and finished six days later at Bowness-on-Windermere.

Also taking part in the Dalesway hike was Clare Addison, of Tandridge Village and matron for surgery at East Surrey Hospital. She was diagnosed with Parkinson’s two years ago and is driving improvements in care for Parkinson’s patients at Surrey and Sussex healthcare NHS trust.
