If you or someone you care for has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease this is an ideal opportunity to meet and connect with others within the local community who are living with Parkinson’s each day.
Also, an opportunity to connect with fellow carers who meet independently for a coffee and chat monthly.
The day will also see the launch of the much needed fundraising event where proceeds remain in the local area and assist TPPSG with the purchase of equipment, fulfil club projects and ensure, where necessary, certification is up to date to assist in the delivering of current strategies and programs available.
First prize is one week, for six people at Myall’s houseboat holiday, valued at $2,000 on the Tangles boat.
Tangles is currently undergoing restorative works and will be ready for the trip to Myall Lakes, along with a flotilla of vessels from Soldiers Point Sailing Club in support of TPPSG mid-December, in time for the raffle draw on 18 December.
Lee Anlezark, President, TPPSG, told News Of The Area, “Help yourself, diet, exercise, attitude, it is important to keep hope alive.”
“After diagnosis it is easy to slip into an isolated lifestyle, however, it is very important to get back into the community. As soon as you isolate, you’re a gonna.”
