Parkinson’s UK Supporters raise £3,940 with Give as you Live

Parkinson’s UK supporters have now raised £3,940 through Give as you Live technology. The charity has worked hard to spread the word to their supporters, and they have even had a Give as you Live day with all of their staff.

Steve Ford, Chief Executive at Parkinson’s UK, said: “We were delighted to receive our first cheque from Give as you Live from the funds raised so far.

“This generous donation demonstrates the success of Give as you Live and shows how it is going from strength to strength. I’ve found that using Give as you Live is a simple way of raising vital funds for the charity.

“I’d encourage those who haven’t already signed up to do so. It’s so easy to download and you can start shopping and donating within minutes.

“The funds raised from the initiative will allow us to continue with our vital work to find a cure, and improve life for those living with Parkinson’s.”
