The season for giving is here, and after a challenging year of cancelled events and vital research being put on hold, we need your help now more than ever. Bring your household or family bubble together or get online with your friends and organise your own festive fundraising event. Whether you’re planning something small or mighty, get creative and have some festive fun while raising vital funds to help us find a cure for Parkinson's.

If you would like to support The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) this Christmas, we have put together ’12 Days of Christmas Fundraising’ to inspire you in your festive fundraising!

  1. Attend our virtual ‘Carols for a Cure’! Join us from home on Wednesday 9 December at 6.30pm and sing along to some wonderful Christmas classics! Find out more about this fantastic virtual event here.
