CareSound Radio were delighted to assist Parkinson’s Scotland on Saturday 30 September at their walk in the grounds of Scone Palace to raise money for research into new treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s.
We broadcast the event live, playing music to those present and interviewing volunteers, health professionals and walkers.
Many participants walked in memory of loved ones or in support of those currently coping with Parkinson’s. Many of the walkers were themselves sufferers.
From those who ran the mile or those who marched the 6-mile route to those who struggled after a gritty and determined few hours, everyone was a hero and between them raised thousands of pounds to help Parkinson’s UK in their important work.
CareSound Radio were pleased to be able to support such a worthwhile event and we mustn’t forget to mention our own volunteer presenter Georgie Williams whose idea it was
that we helped out, and who was present all day as part of the presentation team.
Every hour, someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson’s. It’s a complex, progressive condition that can impact people differently. Currently, there are no
treatments that can slow or stop the condition. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s then there is almost certainly a support group near you including in both Perth and Fife.
