Parkinson’s is a degenerative neurological condition and there is currently no cure.
Crewe & District branch offers information, friendship and support to local people with Parkinson’s, their families and carers.
Geoffrey Sheridan, chair of Crewe & District Branch, said: “We aim to publicise the activities of the branch to ensure people living in this area affected by Parkinson’s are receiving the support and information they need.
“This event is a great opportunity to visit your local branch of Parkinson’s UK, and find out what support is available locally.
“You can join us in making sure that no one has to face Parkinson’s alone.”
