We have just come through a very difficult 18 months during which virtually all our sources
of income have been cut off.
Weíve set up a Just Giving page to help in getting our comprehensive programme
kick started to full working order as soon as possible.

Donating through Just Giving is simple and totally secure.
Make sure that your donation however modest is recorded as intended for the Barnsley and District branch.
Your money will go directly to Parkinsonís UK and returned to the branch with gift aid added, if appropriate.

Nordic Walking is where lightweight poles are used to help propel you as you walk,
swinging your arms and striding out.
The Barnsley branch of the South Yorkshire Nordic Walking Group was formed 2 years ago.
It has become very important to the members as a positive way of mitigating some of the effects of Parkinsonís.
The group meets at 10am on Tuesdays at a local venue.
Here is a link to their Facebook page where you can get more information
