A group of friends and neighbours in Dafen have kicked off Parkinson’s Awareness Week with a fantastic fundraiser.
Roselind Hurley, of Closllanfihangel Sheltered Housing Scheme, decided to hold a coffee morning to raise money and awareness for a cause very dear to her heart.
The 85-year-old took over the communal lounge at the complex for the morning, and raised £317.00 – money which will be used by the charity Parkinson’s UK to continue researching the disease and find a cure.
Sheltered Scheme Officer Beth Worton said: “Roselind did very well to raise that amount of money. It means a lot to her because her husband suffered with Parkinson’s Disease. She wants to thank everyone who attended the coffee morning and everyone who donated to the cause.”
Parkinson’s Awareness Week runs from Monday April 16 to 20. For further information visit www.parkinsons.org.uk
