Walkers pick up the pace for Parkinson’s UK

By The Post in Local People

FORTY-SIX walkers, including five from Launceston, picked up the pace to improve the lives of people living with Parkinson’s on Sunday, June 11 when they took on Walk for Parkinson’s at Port Eliot House and Gardens.

This was one of a series of 32 sponsored Walk for Parkinson’s events being held up and down the country during 2017.

Fundraisers chose either a two or five-mile route around the gorgeous gardens and grounds of Port Eliot.

Parkinson’s UK hopes to raise £4,000 from the day.

Melissa Rimell, regional fundraiser for Parkinson’s UK in the South West, said: “Thank you to everyone who walked and volunteered at Port Eliot to help make it such a fantastic day. All money raised from Walk for Parkinson’s will help us to provide support and information for people affected by Parkinson’s and to help find better treatments, and ultimately a cure.”
