Interested in volunteering for us?
Without volunteers the branch could not operate, so we’re very grateful for the time and skills people so generously give. Lots of our volunteers make a huge contribution to the success of our branch but choose not to join the Committee.
We are currently looking for the following:
- Someone with good writing / editing skills to be part of the web team and help write articles on our website.
- A person with some media experience to liaise with the press and raise our profile.
If you are able to help with any of the above, or in any other way, please contact us.

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 and supermarket and other collections. Grants are also pursued where possible.
If a donation is made by cheque it is important to use the full title of the branch in the payee line: “Fareham Branch Parkinson’s UK” as otherwise the money will not reach group funds. The cheques should be passed to the branch treasurer at meetings or you can use the ‘contact form’ to obtain a postal address.
Walk the Test Way
Lesley and friends walked the 26 miles of the Test Valley challenge from St Mary Bourne to Romsey, and have been sponsored for more that £440. A tiring but fantastically rewarding effort.
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.
