We’re really excited to announce our Branch’s first ever Christmas Concert at 7.30pm Friday 15 December 2017 at the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe.
Everyone is welcome to what promises to be a brilliant evening of entertainment to put us in the festive spirit. We’ll have a full programme of arias, carols and Christmas favourites from High Wycombe’s 90-strong “Everyone Can Sing Choir”, professional soprano Caroline Patterson and a brass quintet led by Craig Patterson on trumpet. Caroline has performed with opera companies including European Chamber Opera. Craig has played in West End shows and is a professional orchestra player and band leader.

After an amazing fundraising walk of more than 1,500 miles, Peter the Pilgrim (Peter Charles) has reached his final destination – the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Not bad for a 70 year-old with Parkinson’s!
Peter the Pilgrim successfully completed stage 2 of his fundraising walk, ahead of schedule on 9 May, when he reached the town of Saintes in France. His entire pilgrimage of over 1,500 miles will see him walk from Little Missenden, Buckinghamshire to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. See photos from the pilgrimage.
In Cornwall, with 273 miles under his belt, Peter the Pilgrim completed stage 1 of his fundraising walk on 15 March. His entire pilgrimage of over 1,500 miles will see him walk from Little Missenden, Buckinghamshire to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. See photos from the pilgrimage.
Now, following a short break, Peter began stage 2 in Roscoff, Brittany on 27 March after stepping off an overnight Ferry.
Thanks to a full house, our Food for Thought quiz made a fantastic £1514 for Parkinson’s UK.
The funds will go towards a special research project which will use revolutionary new gene manipulation technology. It will look for genes that protect people from Parkinson’s and might pave the way for radical new treatments.
