NTF News July 2021

Summer is here!

Summer is finally here and it‘s time to get outdoors and enjoy yourself

August sees the launch of our virtual Summer Tea Party, where you can raise awareness of tremor and celebrate summer your way and meet others. Why not have a picnic with your friends, a BBQ with your family, or tea and scones in the park.

In addition we have more spaces available for the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 10 October. If you are interested in running, please get in touch.

Are you doing or thinking about doing a fundraising challenge for the NTF? Then let us know!

Thank you!

We would like to thank everyone who has donated to the NTF this month. Your contribution is much appreciated and we really value your support. The NTF relies on donations to ensure it supports people with tremor. As little as the price of a cup of coffee could make the difference to someone's life.

Support group news round up

Jackie Farrell, Support Groups Coordinator

With the uncertainty of when face to face support groups can meet up again, why not check out the online events? There are a wide variety to choose from for all ages including events with guest speakers.

We appreciate new people may be a little apprehensive, but rest assured no one has to be interactive at meetups. We hope you will join us to meet others with tremors.
