Parkinson’s UK’s Burnham on Sea group issues urgent appeal for volunteers

Parkinson UK’s Burnham on Sea Group has issued an urgent appeal for volunteers.

The groupruns monthly drop-ins for people living with Parkinson’s and their loved ones in the local area. The group can only continue to provide this vital support, thanks to the wonderful support of its volunteers. 

The two roles that urgently need filled are Finance Contact and  support for the group’s coordinator. 

These are flexible roles with a big impact – you will ensure people with Parkinson’s locally can access activities that make a real difference to them.

Do you have a few hours a month to spare? Would you like to make a huge difference to the local Parkinson’s community? 

Mary Jane Hunter, Network Support Officer, Parkinson’s UK said:

“The Burnham on Sea Support Group is a lifeline for people in the local area who are living with Parkinson’s, but unless new volunteers step forward people could be left without the support they need.

“If you can spare a few hours a month we’d love to welcome you to volunteer alongside the amazing people who are part of Burnham on Sea group – because with your support we really can change lives.”

Around 145,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s UK is the UK’s leading charity supporting those with the condition. Its mission is to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson’s through pioneering research, information, support and campaigning.

There are around 365 Parkinson’s UK local groups throughout the UK, which are run by volunteers who are trained and supported by Parkinson’s UK staff.

The Burnham on Sea Parkinson’s UK group meets on the second Monday of the month (apart from January and August) at the Catholic Church, Highbridge Road, Burnham- on-Sea.
