APSE is delighted to announce that we have recently reached an outstanding £40,000 in fundraising for our corporate charity, Parkinson’s UK.
This brilliant amount has been raised through our charity dinners and events, including APSE’s annual Service Awards for local authority frontline services, where we continually see an amazing amount of generosity from attendees. We would like to thank all members, delegates and guests who have contributed to this milestone and who helped us to support such an excellent charity.
APSE chose Parkinson’s UK over 6 years ago, after a former national chair was diagnosed with the progressive neurological condition. This personal connection has made APSE more determined to contribute as much as possible to the life-changing work carried out by Parkinson’s UK.
APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien said, ‘The solid support of local government officers and councillors, over a number of years, in helping to raise this fantastic sum of money is greatly appreciated. Support to people suffering from this disease, and research into the condition, is ever more critical so I am pledging our further support to this great charity.’
APSE will continue to support Parkinson’s UK at our events, and we welcome any support and donations from our members.
