We aim to help people with Parkinson’s and their families throughout the whole of Fife. The branch offers support and friendship in various ways. The branch provides.
Research is vital to finding a cure and the charity has created a new branch post of Research Champion and our branch Champion is Werner Remmele. Werner who is also a member of the Edinburgh branch research team will update this page with information on research items. Werner has informed us that the Fife Branch is now part of a new group called the Dundee Research Interest Group linked to Dundee University for anyone interested in finding out about the research undertaken by Parkinson’s Research Scientists throughout the world. The Group is joined by Taysides and Stirling at various times to discuss topics relevant to the groups aims.
The organisation of getting to our events is key to the success of our branch, you can’t enjoy our events if you can get to them! Our transport needs are looked after by David Fitzimmonds who will endeavour to satisfy transport requirements whenever a new need is identified. At present John arranges two coaches for our monthly Falkland days, one from Dunfermline and the other from Kirkcaldy with door to door pickups. Other outings are usually arranged with central pickup points , one in Kirkcaldy and one in Dunfermline. If you live too far away from either centre then consideration would be given to arranging a taxi for you provided the cost is not prohibitive. David will contact you in advance of meetings to check if you are going and if so will advise of your pickup time slot and so it is very important that you make sure that your contact details are always up to date.
We produce a newsletter throughout the year to keep our members informed, you can read (download) our previous and current newsletters here:
