Whittlesey Rotary Club

RICHARD Tyner representative of the Peterborough Parkinson’s Society visited the Rotary Club of Whittlesey recently.

He spoke with humour about their work and said there is no cure and no real knowledge of why some people get it and others not.

Most people who get the disease are over 50 but it can affect younger people. Richard said a lack of the chemical Dopamine caused slowness of movement and response. This means that affected people take longer to do things.

Richard thanked the Rotary Club for their generous support.
