Parkinson's UK Members' Day and AGM

Our Members' Day and Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on Saturday 12 October 2019.

A big thank you to everyone who attended our Members’ Day & AGM. The day brought together the Parkinson's community from across the UK, with around 200 of our members, friends and family members attending events in London, Stirling, Templepatrick and Newcastle.

Push forward together

Carolyn Nutkins, our director of organisational development, commented:

“Hosted by Paul Mayhew Archer, attendees enjoyed interesting and inspiring sessions including recognising the benefits of physical activity and exercise, and how the collective power of Team Parkinson’s will enable us to achieve more together as we enter our next strategic period. Hearing about the pioneering work of our research programmes offered attendees hope and determination to push forward together.  

“We thanked our exiting Chair, Mark Goodridge, for ten years as a trustee, including four years as Chair of the Board, and we welcomed our incoming Chair, Gary Shaughnessy.”
