A WOMAN from Wells has featured in a new charity film designed to highlight the realities of living with Parkinson's.

Geraldine Peacock is front and centre of the film, which took over London’s Piccadilly Lights on World Parkinson's Day yesterday (Thursday, April 11).

According to charity Parkinson's UK, over 153,000 people are living with the disease in the UK. There is currently no known cure.

Geraldine has shared her experiences in the film and explained how dance has helped her on her journey.

Five other personal stories are also shared, which highlights how Parkinson's impacts everyone differently.

The film can be watched on YouTube.

Juliet Tizzard, director of External Relations at Parkinson’s UK, said: “These unique films show there is no typical Parkinson’s journey. With over 40 different symptoms, Parkinson’s is often different from one person to the next. And as our six amazing stories show, it’s also different for each person from day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute. 

“Parkinson’s UK is here for everyone affected by Parkinson’s. Whether it’s offering advice through our helpline, information to help manage life with Parkinson’s, or connecting with people in the same boat, we are here to ensure that no one faces Parkinson’s alone.”
