Char­ity ef­fort is up and run­ning

The Oban Times - - News -

OBAN half-marathon run­ner Nathalie Porter has thanked spon­sors for do­nat­ing £363 in aid of Parkin­son’s UK, a char­ity which is help­ing to find a cure for and sup­port suf­fer­ers of the de­gen­er­a­tive ner­vous dis­or­der.

Nathalie, who works at Eleanor’s hair sa­lon in the town, raised the money from the In­ver­ness half-marathon.

She said: ‘My granny had Parkin­son’s, so it’s a char­ity close to my heart.’

Nathalie’s sis­ter, Mar­saili, also ran the 13-mile course along­side her, with friends and fam­ily cheer­ing them en route.
