We are most grateful to the NFU Mutual Agency Giving Fund for supporting the Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy with a generous gift of £6,379.
Having heard about our vision for this ground-breaking Centre and the impact it will have on those living with Parkinson’s during Kent Giving Week, the Canterbury and Sittingbourne Agency nominated the Centre via the Kent MS Therapy Centre to receive funding from the national £1.92 million ‘NFU Mutual Agency Giving Fund’.
Appointed Representative for NFU Mutual in Canterbury and Sittingbourne, James Hodge, said: “NFU Mutual has been a champion of rural communities the length and breadth of the UK for over 110 years, and the Agency Giving Fund champions local causes that are working day and night to change people’s lives and give hope for a better future. We’re extremely proud to have nominated Kent MS Therapy Centre for this donation and are delighted to be able to support the vital contribution they make to our community.”
Spencer Goddard, Chief Executive Officer of the Kent MS Therapy Centre, a partner in this initiative, said: “The Kent MS Therapy Centre is proud to be working in partnership with the University of Kent and Parkinson’s Care and Support UK to establish the UK’s first integrated care centre for those living with Parkinson’s disease. We are extremely grateful to the NFU Mutual Giving Agency for supporting our vision and their gift will enable us to offer a range of evidence-based therapies to people with Parkinson’s in our county to help them live better for longer. We will be carrying out ground-breaking research at the Centre which will inform the way we treat people with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions such as MS, dementia and stroke and the NFU’s support will play a key role in this. Once again, we are most thankful for their gift.”
