Fenland residents affected by Parkinson’s invited to free event

A free event for people affected by Parkinson’s across Fenland will take place on Wednesday (12).

The event, organised by the charity Parkinson’s UK, will provide people with Parkinson’s and their loved ones with information on the latest research in the disease.

The charity’s research team will be available to give an overview of the latest Parkinson’s research developments.


Julie Wilson, the charity's area development manager, said:“We’re really excited to offer this opportunity to people in Fenland who are affected by Parkinson’s, the opportunity to find out about the pioneering research being done to find new and better treatments that could one day stop, slow down or reverse Parkinson’s. The event will offer exclusive access to the charity’s research team, giving people the chance to ask their questions.”

Around 145,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with Parkinson’s, including 13,701 in the East of England. Parkinson's UK is the UK's leading charity supporting those with the condition. Its mission is to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's through pioneering research, information, support and campaigning.

The event will take place from 1pm to 3pm at The Braza Club, Elm Road, March. Free refreshments will be provided. For info and booking contact Julie Wilson jmwilson@parkinsons.org.uk or call 0300 123 3675.
