Parkinson's charity asks for funding partnerships

Parkinson's charity asks for funding partnerships
4th November 2009

A leading charity for those with Parkinson's disease is asking people to partner with them when using a new service.

Working with over 1,600 retailers including the likes of HMV, Marks & Spencer and Tesco, Quidco gains commission from their partners which can then be passed onto the buyer.

However, the Parkinson's Disease Society is looking for people to be kind and select the charity as the chosen recipient of the extras, whether it's all or just a small fraction of the returns.

Paul Jackson-Clark, the director of fundraising at the Parkinson's Disease Society, asked people to choose the charity when signing up to use the innovative service.

He continued: "This partnership, the first of its kind for us, offers a really simple way of helping us fund our vital work to fund cutting edge research and improve the lives of people living with Parkinson's."

Last week, the charity reported that nearly two-thirds of people under the age of 65 with Parkinson's disease said they had been wrongly forced into finding jobs despite being physically unable to work.
