An Art Exhibition by Harold Hubberman will be held in the House of Lords, Bank of Ireland, College Green, Dublin 2 on Wednesday 13th April. Harold has been living with Parkinson’s for many years now and while he can find writing and simple tasks like turning over in bed to be a real struggle he finds painting is an enormous source of relaxation for him.

Harold has very kindly donated his art to be auctioned with all the proceeds going to the Parkinson’s Association of Ireland during Parkinson's Awareness Week. To see some of Harolds paintings, click on the link below.

100% funded by charitable donations and sponsorship

Did you know that we are totally reliant on charitable donations, membership and corportate sponsorship? We receive no government funding, and don't have any charity partners. We, like many other charities, are finding these economic times difficult while we strive to continue to offer free information and advice to people newly diagnosed with Parkinson's, as well as those living with Parkinson's, their families, carers and friends.

Magazine articles and stories 

We are looking for some stories, your experiences and your tales for our magazine. We are looking for articles and stories about things you have done, things you have experienced, good and bad, and all submissions will be considered. Hopefully this will be a regular feature going forward, as our feedback on the magazine says that people with Parkinson's want to hear about other people with Parkinson's.
If you have something you would like considered, please email it to info@parkinsons.ie or post it to us - Parkinson's Assoc of Ireland, Carmichael House, Nth Brunswick St, Dublin 7.
