Parkinson's Disease awareness week

Efforts are being made this week to raise awareness of Parkinson's Disease, which affects up to 500 Manx residents.

The Isle of Man Parkinson’s Disease Society has been running for 20 years, and will be holding events to let the public know more about the work it does.
