Daisy Doyle plants 50 oak trees for Parkinson’s research

Last Autumn, 11 year old Daisy Doyle, granddaughter of Cure Parkinson’s co-founder Air Vice Marshal Michael Dicken and Patron Jenny Dicken, planted 50 oak trees on her family farm in Umberleigh, Devon in support of our research into a cure for Parkinson’s.

Daisy chose to do this as part of her year 6 project at Blundells School in Tiverton. Once the 50 trees were planted, people could ‘adopt’ one in return for a donation to Cure Parkinson’s. We are thrilled to announce that after smashing her initial fundraising target of £500, Daisy has raised a phenomenal £2,430. A huge congratulations to you Daisy, thank you for your fantastic eco-fundraising efforts!

Each tree has been assigned a number and the name of the person who has sponsored  it; and yearly updates will be sent on the tree’s progress.

In a speech to her class about her fundraising project, Daisy said:

Cure Parkinson’s is very dear to me and my family…This charity is like an oak tree, it started like an acorn and over 16 years it has grown into a mighty oak.
