We are powered by people. We’re here to find a cure and improve lives, together.


Hi family and friends, most of you know that Graham and I are living with the horrible condition that is called Parkinson’s Disease. You may not know that it is progressive and that it robs sufferers of control over movement, ability to walk and even their voice.

It can be slow or it can be sudden, it can come on at any age.

Depression, anxiety, confusion and often dementia are also part of the future we can look forward to.

This is a cruel condition that affects thousands of people and their families.

Please help us by donating what you can to Parkinson’s UK. Which will go towards research into finding a cure for this miserable disease.

My challenge is to do the Couch to 5K!!! I am no athlete and I’m not fit. I couldn’t jump out of an aeroplane, or climb a mountain but I’m going to do this!!!! (With your help) It should take me 9 weeks. Fingers crossed.

Anyone can get Parkinson’s. It gets worse over time and there’s no cure. Yet. Funding research into the most promising treatments, we’re getting closer to a cure. Until then, we're improving life for people with Parkinson’s, and the people in their lives. Together we'll find a cure.
