Inglewood fundraises for Newbury Parkinson's Group
The Audley Inglewood retirement home in Kintbury is fundraising for Parkinson's Newbury branch by walking, jogging, taking classes, walking dogs and generally being active.
Many participants of the Inglewood Leisure Club and owners of properties at the Inglewood Village have already walked past the goal of 70 miles.
The group are keen to increase awareness surrounding the symptoms of Parkinson's disease and enable people to find the information and support they need.
Common symptoms to be aware of include trouble sleeping, losing sense of smell, small handwriting, bladder or bowel issues, depression, anxiety, fatigue, tremor, slow movement, stiffness, less flexibility and cramps.
"Locally, there is an amazing network of people that enjoy one another's company and take part in regular activities to offset the symptoms of Parkinson's," said Kate Duncan, club manager for Audley Group. "They vary from sedentary to sporty, musical to physiotherapy."
The Newbury branch of Parkinson's UK offers friendship and support to people with Parkinson's, their families and carers.
