HELP to improve the lives of people living with Parkinson’s disease by taking part in a charity walk.

Support and research charity Parkinson’s UK is launching this year’s Santa Stroll.

People from the Portsmouth area are invited to take part in the seven-and-a-half mile walk, which takes place around the Cowdray Estate, near Midhurst, West Sussex.

The sponsored walk will raise money for the charity.

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative neurological condition and there is currently no cure.

Nick Posford, regional fundraiser at Parkinson’s UK, said: ‘I’m really excited about our event.

‘We hope as many people as possible join us for the sponsored walk for a morning to remember and get them feeling festive for Christmas.

‘This year we have also introduced a short buggy walk, so no one needs to feel left out.’

Registration is £15 for adults and will include a Santa outfit.

Children can join in the fun for £5 and are encouraged to come in their fancy dress outfits.

All proceeds will help fund Parkinson’s UK, which uses funding to help find a cure.

Money is also used to improve the lives of anyone affected by the condition.

The Santa Stroll takes place on Sunday, November 25.
