About Parkinson’s UK

Registered charity number: 258197

Parkinson’s UK is the Parkinson’s charity driving better care, treatments and quality of life.

According to the NHS there are over 145,000 people in the UK living with Parkinson’s, that’s around 1 adult in every 350. Parkinson’s UK is the charity that is there for every one of those people beyond diagnosis, and it’s on a mission to change attitudes, support one another and find a cure.

Your old car donation to this force of a charity will be channelled into one of its vital roles. Parkinson’s UK is funding groundbreaking research to find new and better treatments – in years, not decades – and ultimately find a cure. In the meantime the charity is aware that people living with Parkinson’s find life challenging, so funds are used to provide support and information so people feel more in control of their lives. Another key part of the charity’s work and where your car donation may be used is to change attitudes and raise awareness. A more ‘Parkinson’s friendly’ society that is understanding and meeting the needs of everyone living with the condition will make a huge difference to people’s lives.

Two new promising treatments for Parkinson’s are due to be tested in UK clinical trials and the improved drugs and treatments being developed will get to people faster. Your old car could help make this progress. Funds are also being used to ensure all professionals involved in Parkinson’s care share best practice and access the right tools and training.

And while all this progress is being made, Parkinson’s UK has 450 groups uniting local communities across the UK supporting people at all stages of the condition and welcoming family members and carers.

“Parkinson’s UK would like to say a heartfelt thank you to the team at Charity Car and its generous customers who have so lovingly recycled their used cars in this unique and effective way, raising thousands of pounds for us. Your old car donations have helped to fund groundbreaking research and life-changing services for people with Parkinson’s and we can only continue our vital work with the support provided by partners like Charity Car.
We have been delighted with our partnership with Charity Car over the years and thrilled to receive the proceeds from your old car donations, totalling over £11,000 so far. From smaller scrap donations to some larger auction figures we’ve been able to use every penny to help support people with Parkinson’s.”
