Rick was appointed as Director of Fundraising and Marketing in July 2019. Diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2017, Rick was inspired to join the charity after the screening of the BBC Two programme ‘The Parkinson’s Drug Trail: a miracle cure?’- a two episode documentary following nine individuals including the late co-founder of the charity Tom Isaacs through a pioneering drug trial.

With a career that has spanned marketing and fundraising, including five years of senior leadership roles, Rick will focus on increasing donations and raising awareness of the charity’s single goal, to cure Parkinson’s.
