London to Paris

Charlotte on bike

It’s all for a good cause.  Charlotte Harris, Project Manager at Showplace, an events solutions company based in Stratford upon Avon, will be cycling from London to Paris later this month to raise money for the charity, Multi Systems Atrophy Trust.  Multi Systems Atrophy (MSA) is a life limiting neurological disease that affects roughly 5 in 100,000 people.  It’s a cause close to her heart as her grandfather is a sufferer of the disease, which has left him unable to walk, talk or swallow solid food.  His quality of life has rapidly decreased in a matter of just two years and now requires specialist care in a nursing home.  Charlotte’s aim is to raise awareness of MSA and the work that the charity does so that less people have to suffer in future.  All money raised for this event will go towards specialist nurses, community support and care lines for the charity, as well as crucial research into finding a cure.  To find out more about the condition please visit www.msatrust.org.uk.  For those wishing to donate please go to www.doitforcharity.com/charlotteharris.
