As a child I was an avid reader and I loved writing stories and poems. Then I grew up, became a primary school teacher and forgot all about it. In 2017 I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and all of a sudden I discovered that I had a lot more stories, poems and writing inside of my head that needed to get out. Now I am an active member of ‘Poets with Parkinson’s’ and I enjoy all kinds of writing.

I am currently fundraising for Leuchie House National Respite Centre for people with neurological conditions.

This what Leuchie say about themselves...

At Leuchie we are dedicated to supporting people living with the long-term effects of conditions such as MS, MND, Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions through individualised respite breaks, and by providing an essential break for carers.

With our specialist team, our enabling approach, our stunning location in the East Lothian countryside and our beautiful house, for short breaks with 24 hour care, Leuchie House really is one of a kind. The profile pagew ill only alllow me to post one link but if you google 'Leuchie House' you should be able to fnd their website.

The Butterfly Project

So what am I doing? I would like you to sponsor me to paint butterflies. For every donation I receive, I will add a blue butterfly to a painting.

Why blue butterflies?

Firstly the butterflies are blue because blue is the colour that represents Parkinson's.

Secondly butterflies for me signify change. Parkinson's is a constantly evolving disease but it's not been all bad. Some of things that have happened to me because of Parkinson's have been amazing and I mean amazing in a good way. The butterflies are a celebration of all the positive things that have happened in my life as a result of Parkinson's.

Thirdly the butterflies also represent freedom and the ability to fly away from your troubles. This is what Leuchie House offers both its guests and their carers, the opportunity to not only escape their worries for a while but also to enhance their life experiences.

As a wee incentive I am giving away a Gift voucher for Ali Blevins Art for £100. If you leave you mr name and contact details I will add you to the draw. I will make the draw when I have reached 100 sponsors - or on January 1st whichever comes first!

Here is the link to both my justgiving page - Thank you x
