healthy donation from Darlington Lions Club
DARLINGTON’S Parkinson's UK group has received a £250 boost from the local Lions Club to help keep its members fighting fit.
The money will be used buy new exercise mats for twice-monthly exercise classes run by a qualified physiotherapist who has an interest in Parkinson's.
Pat McCarthy, chairwoman of the Parkinson's UK Darlington branch, said: "The charity offers information, friendship and support to local people with Parkinson's, their families and carers and they have regular events and social activities."
Darlington Lions Club vice president Robert Hillary added: "The club were delighted to assist this worthwhile charity and the new exercise mats will I am sure come in very useful."
