Fund raising activities have included activities such as hosting weekly quiz nights, chocolate parties and selling donated items at car boot sales. In addition proceeds from the sale of Bobbie's poetry books Reflecting the Light and Finding the Light were donated to OPDC.

The team were keen to support the work of OPDC having learned about our research following a talk by senior research fellow Laura Parkkinen. Bobbie Coelho said “We want to show that people with Parkinson’s can still contribute and make the world a better place.”
