THIS WEEKEND! CREAM TEA in aid of Oxford Branch
Cream Tea 2017

You are very welcome to join us for Cream Tea at 59 Victoria Road, Oxford OX2 7QF from 3pm on Sunday 30th June - fresh scones, home-made jam and clotted cream, cakes and music in a festive atmosphere.

Entry is free but there will be a small charge for tea and cakes, and we'll also have a raffle and other fundraising activities.

There are a few steps up to the house from the street, but help will be available if you need it.

We look forward to seeing many of you there!

We offer information, activities, friendship and support to local people with Parkinson's, their families and carers.

Swindon Branch hard at work

We are thrilled to learn that our good friends in Swindon Branch have been granted the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service. The award will be formally presented to Dave Logan and his team by Sarah Troughton, Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire, on 17th July.

You can read more about the background to this prestigious award in an article in the Swindon Advertiser at this link.

We're planning a fundraising auction in the autumn.

For it to go well we need your help!

Can you provide auction lots? Can you persuade your wealthy acquaintances to turn up and bid for the wonderful lots you will have offered?

YES, of course you can! Visit our auction information page to find more.
