People can learn about Parkinson’s research during an event on Monday.

Keighley Parkinson’s Support Group will have information about research into the disease carried out by the charity Parkinson’s UK.

Claire Bale will give a presentation at Keighley Healthy Living in Scott Street at 1.45pm. She said: “We are passionate about research and want to help people understand what researchers do behind the scenes in the labs.”

The Keighley group offers information, friendship and support to people with Parkinson’s, their families and carers.

Committee member, Jack Holmes, said: “Every hour someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson’s, but at the moment there is no cure.”
