Bourne support group for Parkinson’s UK needs new volunteers
A support group for Parkinson’s UK has issued an urgent appeal for new volunteers.
People in and around Bourne are encouraged to get in touch if they can spare a few hours each month to ensure the group can continue to help people affected by Parkinson’s.
The group meets at the Bourne Methodist Church on the last Wednesday of each month and provides information, support, friendship, and activities to people affected by Parkinson's, their families and carers.
The group is looking for volunteers to help run and plan activities. These are flexible roles with a big impact, ensuring that people don’t face Parkinson’s alone in Bourne and the surrounding areas.
Rose Crawley from Parkinson’s UK said: “The Bourne support group is a lifeline in the area for those affected by Parkinson’s, but unless new volunteers step forward people could be left without the support they need.
“If you can spare an hour or two a month we’d love you to volunteer alongside the amazing people who are already part of this group.”
About 153,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
Parkinson's UK is a charity supporting those with the condition, and research into a cure.
