Elaine Evans was diagnosed with Parkinson's at 47, retired at 50 - but wasn't ready to give up work completely.
That's why she's been volunteering for Parkinson's UK for the past decade, using her skills to help others.
Volunteering with Parkinson's
"I wanted to maintain my people skills and get people together, making sure people with Parkinson's weren't afraid.
"I think volunteering gives you confidence – you meet other people, and people within the organisation. That gives you strength."
