Residents and staff at a Duffield care home handed over £730 to a Parkinson’s charity after holding a Summer fete.

Springwood House employees Megan Fox and Natasha Edwards organised the event for Parkinsons UK after receiving training about the condition and how it affects people’s lives.

Darren Worthy, Regional Fundraiser for the East Midlands for Parkinson’s UK, said: “Our work is totally dependent on donations, and it’s the generosity of fundraisers such as Megan, Natasha and everyone at Springwood House that means we can continue our vital research work. “ Pictured: Natasha Edwards and Megan Fox (standing) with residents Brenda Neve, Mary Bottrill, Billie Robinson and Joaquim Lopes.
