Lawton Manor raises awareness and funds for Parkinson’s UK

Posted on February 1st, by editor in CT Extra. No Comments

Healthcare professionals and members of the local community all gathered together at Lawton Manor care home in February to support a Parkinson’s awareness and fundraising event.

The event is part of Majesticare’s aim to support national charities through awareness building in the local community and by fundraising.
Majesticare managing director Erica Hart said her company had worked with Parkinson’s UK over a period of time in other homes with great success.
“This charity provides a great deal of support for people suffering with
Parkinson’s and I am glad we can help to support them,” said Ms Hart.
Regional Parkinson’s Team Cheryl Ford, Robert Massey and Amanda Elliot all came to Lawton Manor to provide presentations on Parkinson’s and to answer any questions people had on a more personal level. There were also fundraising activities throughout the afternoon with raffles, tombola and a book sale. A total of £500 was raised at the event.
