Gearing up for Parkinson's Awareness Week

Parkinson’s Awareness Week starts on Monday 19 April and we’re spreading the word about the condition and about Parkinson’s UK in every community.

Local groups and our local teams around the UK have been planning for months to put on activities like nature walks, information stands in hospitals and other drop-in events. Volunteers have been collecting bric-a-brac and baking cakes to sell at market stalls all around the UK. They've arranged supermarket collections, organised guest speakers to talk about Parkinson’s research, sold tickets for concerts and there’s even an Antiques Roadshow-style auction!

Apart from the work we all do together to raise awareness of Parkinson’s in the national media, Parkinson’s Awareness Week is a chance for us to get out into the community and be seen by the general public.

But it doesn’t hurt to get a bit of local media coverage as well:

Look and see what’s on in your area And if you're holding an event next week tell us about it here. We'd love to hear how it goes.
