END OF YEAR 2016 REVIEW
It is now nearing the end of my third year as your Chairman and I
felt that now
is a good time for me to allow someone new to take over the
New ideas are always needed and many changes are on the way.New
Research is starting to make a breakthrough, it may well be in
time to make a
difference to some of you, but as we know only too well Research
great deal of money and is also initially expensive to administer
to the lucky
few who get to trial these new drugs and procedures.
I have enjoyed being part of this group for Parkinson’s
we have raised good money for research as well as being able to
new ideas and other physical things such as Dance exercise classes
and the Singing group.
David Rudd as your Vice Chairman has been the lead in introducing
things and your Committee has neen very helpful in allowing the
monies to be
spent to facilitate their introduction.A good many people are
making use of
these facilities, but there is room for more to attend please talk
to David and
those that use the facilities, find out more.
They have been introduced to help
you, that is why we do the Fundraising.
The Committee are planning more events over the next year to raise
so I ask you to please support your Committee and your new
you have me.Help them to make a success of their work, they do
voluntarily to help make life with Parkinson’s a little easier for
I intend to be at the majority of the St Ives meetings, so I will
be involved still,
but not on the Committee for a while at least.I will where
possible help out on various Fundraising activities.
I know that you are very lucky to have David Rudd as your Vice
has a wealth of knowledge about Parkinsons and will be invaluable
I thank you all for putting your trust in me for the past three
years,I may not
have seen you all as often as I may have wished, but have always
interest and welfare at the forefront of me thoughts.
In closing may I wish you all the very best for now and in the
I hope to see many of you on 1st March 2017 at our AGM.
