OPDC supporter Bobbie Coelho launches Children's Book


Roberta (Bobbie) Coelho is a member of the Andover Branch of Parkinson's UK and has already co-raised over £17,000 since 2003 for Parkinson's research.

Bobbie who has already published a number of poetry books, has decided to try her hand at children's writing and has produced a 13-page children's book which tells the tale of Little Roger

the dinosaur, who is fed up of lighting barbeques and sets off on an adventure.

Copies of Little Roger's Big Adventure can be bought for £5.99 by contacting opdc.administrator@dpag.ox.ac.uk

Mrs Coelho said "This is something I wanted to try to see if I would be any good at, and every penny will go to Parkinson's research.

"Parkinson's is a very progressive condition with no cure, and it can make you feel out of it and feel quite lonely at times.

"I just want people to understand not all diseases are visible."
