Parkinson’s is a degenerative neurological disorder which tends to affect people over 50 years of age, although approximately one in 20 of those diagnosed is under 40 years of age.

Brain cells produce a chemical called Dopamine and sufferers of Parkinson’s lose this chemical and it becomes harder for the brain cells which help to control movement to work. This may cause difficulty with walking, talking, writing, eating and other everyday tasks. There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s disease, although research is ongoing.

Volunteers at the Bradford and Shipley branch of the Parkinson’s society arrange many events, fundraisers and meeting to assist the people of Bradford who are suffering with this disease. We currently run an exercise group which is extremely beneficial to the members. The costs of running this group are high due to transport, venue, instructor etc. The majority of our fundraising is aimed at providing funds to support the continuation of this group.

On Saturday 7th September we are holding a sponsored walk at Lister Park at 1pm. Anybody and everybody is welcome whether you want to join in with the walk or if you just want to bring a picnic down to the park and support the people taking part. There are different walks for different levels of fitness and ability so you only need to do as much as you feel you can cope with. The entrance fee is £10 which includes a free t-shirt and sponsorship forms are included with the registration pack.

Join us for a fun-packed event!
