Hi, as it says on my badge my name is PARKY and l am the mascot for the Wakefield Parkinsons Support Group. This year l am going on tour not only around Yorkshire and the UK but also around the World. If you see me on my travels don't be shy and do please come over and have a word with my Carer who will be more than happy to tell you what its like to live with me everyday.
My main Carer Dave Foster will be posting regular updates regarding the tour on Facebook and Twitter (@...wakefieldparky) and also on the Wakefield Support Group Website www.parkinsonswakefield.org (see link below). Here you will find pictures and stories of my adventures.
If you are involved with a Parkinson's Support Group anywhere in the World why not adopt your own mascot to
join me in my campaign to try to educate the wider public as to how Parkinson's effects so many people.
As you all know there are many faces of Parkinson's and it would be fantastic if you could involve your members in selecting or even designing a mascot for your group and then using him or her to promote Awareness by posting pictures and stories on line or running a campaign in your local area.
Please feel free to contact my Main Carer David Foster to let him know if you think this is a good idea and s
something you would like to get involved with.
Please Like or better still Share this post so that l can reach as many people as possible to try and make this the success l hope it can be.
All the best PARKY
