The monthly cafe provides an opportunity for people living with Parkinson’s and their loved ones to come together and chat – but it needs a volunteer Activity Leader.

This is a flexible role with a big impact, ensuring that people with Parkinson’s can access activities that make a real difference to them.

Cara Connolly, Network Support Officer, Parkinson’s UK said: “Whitby cafe is a lifeline for people in the local area who are living with Parkinson’s, but we rely on volunteers to help us keep it running.

"Without this incredible support these groups could be forced to close.

“We’d love to hear from anyone who can spare a couple of hours each month to volunteer alongside the amazing people at the Whitby group.
