Shrewsbury NEWS 3
Pitch and strut! It just missed the April newsletter, but we wanted to say a big thank you to Shrewsbury Golf Club who on 20 March held their annual 9 Hole Open Competition and Fashion Show. Eighty-eight ladies played in the golf competition in wonderful sunshine, with 16 guests joining for lunch and to watch the fashion show. With donations, a cake stall and raffle, over £700 was raised for this year’s Lady Captain, Lesley Hyne’s chosen charity Parkinsons UK, in honour of her late Father Bob Kerry. Lady Captain Lesley Hyne with Club Captain Geoff Croft It is fantastic to see the fundraising support from Branch members, families and friends. Fundraising raises both awareness and funds for Parkinson’s UK to help find a cure and support everyone affected by Parkinson’s. Whether it’s bake sales or carboot sales, raffles or quiz nights there’s something that everyone can do! Please do talk to a Committee Member if you have an idea - every little really does help. Let’s Unite! Fred Jones and Marie Martial attended the session for local Parkinson’s UK groups in the West Midlands. The main topics of discussion were fundraising, the ‘Get it on Time, every time’ campaign and Team Parkinson’s membership update. For more information please talk to Fred or Marie. Medication on time, every time People with Parkinson’s need their medication on time, every time but we know that too many hospitals don’t do this. Join other volunteers and the campaigns team and learn how to push local hospitals to fix this problem; 14 July 2019 from 11am - 3pm at John Lewis Community Hub, 2 Station Street, Birmingham B2 4AU. Contact Campaign Office Jack Grant for more information and to RSVP: JGrant@parkinsons.org.uk / mob 07580 417 103. And finally, Fred’s thoughts... Always be yourself because the people that matter don’t mind, and the ones that mind don’t matter!
