Four ladies in Parkinson's UK tops

Thank you to all our volunteers


This national Volunteers' Week we want to say a huge thank you to every single one of our volunteers.

Throughout the UK thousands of people tirelessly volunteer their time for Parkinson's UK, all looking to bring forward the day no one fears Parkinson's.

Without volunteers, we simply couldn't connect people affected by Parkinson's to the latest information, services or support they've told us they need.

Whether volunteering involves sharing experiences of being newly diagnosed, spreading the word about local services or raising funds towards a cure – every contribution counts.

This year we wanted to tell you the story of the Parkinson's Café in Trent Bridge which, like many, has been driven by the vision and passion of a group of people who wanted to offer something different to people affected by Parkinson's in Nottinghamshire.

Watch the video below to hear from Steve Moss, one of our Trent Bridge Café volunteers.

Shout about the difference you make!

This is one story of many we get sent every week about how volunteers make a difference.

This Volunteers' Week we want all our volunteers to share their experiences of making a difference.

You can tweet about it - just remember to include @ParkinsonsUk and #volunteersweek. 

Or you could post on our Facebook page. You can email us too at [email protected].

Almost 50 years ago our founder Mali Jenkins was driven by a passion, a determination and an empathy to improve the lives of everyone affected by Parkinson's. It's these values we see in every one of our volunteers today - and we can't thank you enough.
