MORE than 90 Parkinson’s sufferers came together on Tuesday for a day of inspiration.

People affected by the condition came from across Suffolk to The Apex, in Bury St Edmunds, for a day of creativity, music and song.

The day also saw the hand over of a cheque for £5,000 from the Freemasons’ Grand Charity to the Parkinson’s UK.

Paula Carey, regional manager of Parkinson’s UK, said: “We are so grateful to the Freemasons’ Grand Charity for making the day possible.

“It was truly inspirational to see the enthusiasm and energy with which everyone participated in the workshops and wonderful to experience the buzz and positive atmosphere throughout the day.”

Participants were able to take part in a range of different activities at the event. Laughter Yoga, a poetry workshop and a singing workshop were just a few of the creative diversions on show.

Barry Ross, grand master for Suffolk, presented the cheque to Ms Carey.
