As always, we must remind you what an excellent organisation Parkinson’s UK is, and urge you to join the national organisation if you have not already done so – only £4 a year, for which you receive 4 issues of the magazine The Parkinson and 2 issues of Progress – the report into research. Phone 0800 138 6593 or join online at parkinsons.org.uk/join. Membership of our local group is free. The research done by Parkinson’s UK into the causes of and treatments for Parkinsons Disease, is of immense benefit to all sufferers, and it is on our interest to keep funding this excellent organisation nationally, as well as fundraising for our local branch.
Please make sure that you complete the section asking which branch you wish to join. Our official title is Long Eaton & District Branch. For your own convenience and to ensure continuity of membership the easiest way to pay is by direct debit.
We aim to cover our expenses at monthly branch meetings by charging a nominal sum of £1. The current charge for exercise classes (Monday/Friday) is £4.50 for a one-hour session, including a drink and biscuits!
