Leigh and Claire climbed with Dara for Parkinson's

They did it! They climbed Three Cliff's famous rock ...

Please give Dara a donation for Parkinson's - she's been fundraising for a few years. This climb was terrifying for her. She hates heights, and Claire Scott can confirm she was absolutely terrified! What a fear to overcome, however she said she'd never do it again. 

Dara's story ....

 

Dara is no stranger to the breakfast show with Leigh and Claire. 

She calls regularly for a chat and to contribute to the show with her husband and six children. Today Dara called for a very different reason ... 

Dara (who is a mum of 6 and is the most positive and lovely lady we know) wanted to climb Three Cliff's Bay and then abseil back down to raise money for Parkinson's Cymru as a family member has recently been diagnosed.

She's also asked Leigh and Claire to do it with her - which they absolutely did - it was the least they could do to support Dara and her family. Even though Claire was absolutely terrified.

Listen to Dara chatting to Leigh and Claire here 

 

Dara has a family member who is suffering from Parkinson's Disease.  "In our family, we have faced many challenges on the road with Parkinson's over the past 2 years and we know there will me many more on the twisting road ahead. But we are a strong loving family and always try to make each other laugh, enjoy the day and see the positive in everything."

Leigh and Claire bumped into Dara and some of her family at Olly Murs In Singleton Park.

Parkinson's disease is caused by a loss of nerve cells in part of the brain. This results in uncoordinated body movements, shaking being the most visible symptom. There is no cure.

We want to say a special thank you to www.ripnrock.co.uk for supplying us with Tom for our climb on the day, it was a fantastic experience and we knew we were in safe hands with him.
