Couple take their Escort all over Europe in the name of charity
We all love a good roadtrip, but for Les and Therese Durrant, their planned 3800-mile trip across Europe in their Mk1 Mexico has a more serious note to it, too.
“I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease back in 2009 and as you can imagine that was a life-changing day,” explains Les. “I’ve bought a Mk1 Escort and after enjoying this year’s Classic Ford Tour, in August we plan to visit Wales, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Monaco, back through Germany and France and then home!”
“Lots of people suggested it should be a sponsored event, so any money we can raise will be split between Parkinson’s UK and the MS Centre in Chester.
