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

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.
