The Haven team donned blue colours this week in support of World Parkinson’s Day on Tuesday 11th April 2023 to help raise awareness of people living with the condition. The awareness day celebrates the global Parkinson’s community and shines a light on the condition by ‘Lighting up Blue’.
The Haven has been providing practical, emotional and bereavement support to individuals, carers and families who have been affected by a life-limiting illness for over 20 years – including those living affected by Parkinson’s.
Paul Hayward, Campaigns and Communications Officer for The Haven said: “𝘞𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥 𝘗𝘢𝘳𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘰𝘯’𝘴 𝘋𝘢𝘺 𝘪𝘴 𝘢 𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵 𝘰𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘶𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘺 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘏𝘢𝘷𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘸 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘴𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘱𝘦𝘰𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘢𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘣𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘪𝘯 𝘓𝘢𝘯𝘢𝘳𝘬𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘢𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘦.
