The Alnwick branch of the Newcastle Building Society is celebrating a year’s worth of successful fund-raising for the local branch of Parkinson’s UK.

The branch, through a range of activities, including a Tour de France-style bike ride and its recent Everest-style challenge, as well as a book sale and other activities, raised £1,070.

Branch manager Stephen Burt is seen with David Turnbull, Ron Bernstein, Marilyn Taylor and Helen Lloyd from the Alnwick Support Group of Parkinsons UK who will use the money towards transport and events.
