Fundraising for Parkinson's Awareness Week

We're halfway through Parkinson’s Awareness Week and hundreds of people have joined us to help find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

We have been fundraising at major railway stations up and down the country from the public this week, and so far we’ve raised over £4,000 from just four collections. One volunteer reported a single donation of £120 and we’ve even had a few celebrity sightings such as Lauren from BBC's Over the Rainbow!

Local media coverage is showing the range of fundraising going on in towns around the UK too. Paul Betney is performing a comedy show with all proceeds to help Parkinson’s in the North West, Somerset Branch has raised money with the local church in Yatton, Terry Clay is running the London Marathon this weekend to raise vital funds, and a school in Liverpool’s Year 9 class has even chosen us as the charity they want to support all year.

Last weekend's scheduled skydive was cancelled because of the volcanic activity in Iceland, but it didn't stop our celebrity supporter, Amy Guy from raising awareness about the event too.

Let us know how your fundraising efforts are going, or find out how our donated funds are used and support us during Parkinson's Awareness Week.
