The Thames Challenge

The Park Lane Group have kickstarted The Thames Challenge with a hefty donation.

Intrepid fundraiser and friend to the Park Lane Group, Dain Jensen of Kileys Carpets, is kayaking the length of the Thames with teammates Seth East, Ross Garnet and James Sullivan.

The group plan to complete the 222 mile journey in just 9 days and fundraise for Charity for Kids at the end of May. Having raised sufficient funds they will be able to buy a new lightweight all-terrain wheelchair for Neisha Potter-Goble.

Neisha has Connective Tissue Disorder and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder. A budding gymnast and athlete from the age of 4, Neisha now has wide-ranging symptoms and extensive joint pain. She has been confined to a wheelchair since 2015.

Despite this, she returned to sport and took up Judo in 2016. Just 20 months later, Neisha won Gold in the 2018 European and World SN Judo Championships.

A new lightweight, low-back wheelchair with an all-terrain will allow Neisha to regain some independence. Our donation has gone some way to meeting the team’s £6,000 target. Further fundraising through Just Giving, friends and family is also contributing. You can donate to The Thames Challenge on JustGiving here.
