The charity walk, which takes place in Bute Park on October 8th, is aiming to raise money to help fund vital research to find better treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

The event includes a range of distances for walkers to tackle, including a family-friendly two-mile route, as well as a six-mile route for those wanting to break a sweat and challenge themselves. The event will house a variety of Parkinson’s information stalls and local Parkinson’s groups available, with live entertainment to see supporters through the day.

There is no minimum sponsorship required to take part and walkers will receive a fundraising pack with tips, sponsorship forms and a trademark bright blue t-shirt to wear on the day. It costs £12 to sign up for the walk, with under-18s able to take part for free.

To sign up to the walk or to volunteer for the day, visit the Parkinson’s UK website:
