Majestic raises £55,000 for Parkinson’s UK
From collection tins in stores, mobile phone and sat nav recycling, staff activities, raffles and social events, we have raised a great amount of money and awareness for the Parkinson’s support and research charity.
Majestic teams participated in the Great South Run, the Reading Half Marathon and the Marathon du Médoc. The Marathon du Médoc, a 26.3 mile race around Bordeaux’s famous vineyards, was one of the year’s most challenging staff fundraisers, which alone raised £10,000 for Parkinson’s UK.
120,000 people have Parkinson’s in the UK and 10,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s every year. Parkinson’s UK provides expert information and support to people with Parkinson’s and their carers, and funds groundbreaking research to find a cure.
Paul Jackson-Clark, Director of Fundraising, Parkinson’s UK:
“We are hugely grateful to all the staff at Majestic Wine who have raised such a fantastic amount. Parkinson’s UK is entirely dependent on voluntary donations and the money raised will help fund our vital work to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson’s. A massive thank you to all the staff at Majestic.“
