Branch meetings

Our next meeting will be at .

The Parkinson's UK Oxford and District Branch meets on the first Wednesday of each month at the W I Hall, North Hinksey Lane, Botley, Oxford OX2 0LT. Meetings begin at 7pm and end around 9pm.

Our monthly meetings usually have a speaker. Recent meetings have informed us about research activities at the University, other Parkinson's-related concerns, and topics of general interest. Some meetings are devoted to group discussion and feedback. At every meeting there is time for tea and coffee when members can chat together.

Non-members are welcome to attend a meeting, but we encourage you to join and become a member to take full advantage of all Branch events, activities and benefits.

Gary Shaughnessy, Chair of Trustees of Parkinson's UK, asks us: and why not?

Gary was diagnosed a few years ago and since then has been enormously energetic in fundraising for Parkinson's: running marathons, cycling from Zurich to his home in Berkshire, and many other events. He was elected Chair of Trustees at the charity's 2019 AGM. He will tell us about - and encourage us to participate in - some of his inventive, innovative and even downright crazy plans for the coming months.
