Friendship Inspires Moped End to End Challenge

End to End Moped Challenge

On 24 June, six friends mounted 50cc mopeds to race from one end of the country to the other, to raise money for the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability which cares for their close friend Danny McMorrow who suffers from menincoccal septicaemia.

Beginning their challenge in John O Groats at the far end of Scotland and finishing in Land’s End four days later, Michael Barnwell, Joe Lynch, Matthew Cooksey, Paul Fullick, David Clarke and Brendan Attril’s route avoided all motorways, with their 50cc mopeds only allowing them to reach top speeds of 32mph.

Danny who has been hospitalised for just over 6 months in total and has extensive damage to his nerve endings and muscles, is slowly learning to use his voice and body again with the help of the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability charity.

One of the UK’s leading centres for the rehabilitation and care of adults with profound disabilities resulting from brain injury or neurological illness. The independent medical charity is not funded by the NHS and must raise over £2 million each year to continue their unique work, and provide care and rehabilitation for over 240 patients.
