Parkinson’s Awareness Week 2015 (20-26 April)

Parkinson’s Awareness Week 2015 (20-26 April) is all about getting everyone to be a whole lot friendlier. Will you ‘up your friendly’?paw2015_upyoufriendlylarge

Holding open a door or a little patience in a long queue can brighten up someone’s day. But for people with Parkinson’s, it can make all the difference.

Meet us at Sainsbury’s Chesham (map) on Friday 24th April.  Our fantastic volunteers will be there to let you know about this year’s theme.

They’ll be handing out treats and inviting you to take a sticker with a small pledge to post on our ‘pledge wall’. Acting on your pledge might just make all the difference to someone with Parkinson’s.

Food for Thought Quiz

29th November 2014

A sell-out event saw over 100 quiz-goers enjoy an evening of puddings, pride and puzzlement while supporting a brilliant cause.

The event raised an amazing total of £1,396.

Every penny raised will go towards Dr Amy Reeve’s research project investigating the role of mitochondria (the tiny power stations that provide the energy our cells need to work) and brain cell death. Her work could help solve the mitochondrial mystery and put a stop to Parkinson’s for good.

During the course of the night there were plenty of cheers, whoops of joy, furrowed brows and groans (Lassie’s coat may have earned the biggest groan) … but we hope everyone had a fantastic time. Continue reading Food for Thought Quiz
