Fareham and District Branch

Fundraising

Fundraising & Donations

The branch is funded by donations from various sources and there is no annual subscription for branch membership. Our sources of finance are legacies and in memoriam donations, raffles, supermarket and other collections. Grants are also pursued where possible

Sending a donation

If a donation is made by cheque it is important to use the full title of the branch in the payee line: “ Parkinsons UK” If paid to our Treasurer it will be included in the Parkinsons Fareham Branch funds.  The cheques should be passed to the branch treasurer at meetings or you can use the ‘contact form‘ to obtain a postal address.

At Fetes

We regularly attend the local Fetes and sell products, hold raffles/tombola and talk to the public to raise their awareness of the Parkinson’s Disease

At Superstores

We attend many of the local Superstores when invited to collect funds and interact with the public

With a Fish and Chip Lunch

We hold an annual fish and chip lunch by the sea for our members and include a small raffle

Parkinson’s Walks

Parkinson’s UK organises walks in our area every year

A Walk on Wilverley  Plain

Two Members braved the walk in pouring rain and  raised £230 in memory of all those Members who sadly are no longer with us over the last couple of years.

At our Christmas Party

We hold an annual Christmas Party for our members complete will all the trimmings and a large raffle

 

What happens to Excess Funding?

Excess funds are sent to Parkinson’s UK at the end of the year to be used for research and centrally run services such as help lines and information leaflets. Our branch has had a lot of support from individuals, organisations and our own members.

It is quite humbling to see the breadth of support we have received. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has made a contribution to the branch and who continues to support us.

Thank you!
