Tarina's husband Geoff said: "It was a really enjoyable day. Everyone worked really hard. We were very please with how generous people can be.


"There were many stories of friends or relatives who suffer with Parkinson’s."

Tarina was diagnosed with the condition at the age of 40 and now experiences body movements, particularly on one side of her body, along with vivid nightmares.

The 44-year-old was keen to raise money for Parkinson's UK following the support that her and her family have received.
