Vygon (UK) Ltd Support the Swindon Parkinson

The local Swindon Parkinson’s group approached Vygon last summer about using the gatehouse on the Vygon premises to learn and practice African drumming. Since then the group have been using it a couple of times a week to teach Sandra and Keith (as pictured) who have Parkinson’s.

The national Parkinson’s magazine recently ran a piece about the positive benefits of drumming. As an activity it increases blood flow, raises heart rate, reduces stress and improves self esteem. Sandra, Keith and Alan have all found the drumming lessons have been therapeutic to their health.

The Parkinson’s group would like to thank Vygon for extending their generosity and support to their group. They said “Howard Hollister has been an absolute star. He has gone out of his way to make us welcome and we are very grateful.”

Alla Cimotisa, Business Responsibility Co-ordinator said “As a responsible company, we want to ensure that everything we do has a positive impact on the environment and the community in which we operate. Helping our local communities is very important to us, and we have made it an integral part of our Business Responsibility Strategy. On this occasion, we are extremely happy to be able to help Parkinson’s Group, and to learn about the difference that it is making.”
