A fun-filled guided walk organised in Llandysul will raise funds for Parkinson's charities.

The Madhatters Walk for Parkinson's, will take place on July 14 in Llandysul.

Participants will get involved in the fun, being encouraged to wear 'mad' hats - the madder the better.

The walk is going to support both the 'Newcastle Emlyn and Tivyside Parkinson’s Support Group' and 'Parkinson's UK Cymru'.

Research indicates daily walking can drastically enhance the lives of people and their ability to live an independent and fulfilling life. This is particularly found in walks of 20 to 30 minutes each day having the power to slow progression of Parkinson's symptoms whilst improving gait, balance, tremor and flexibility.

Organisers are urging people with the disease as well as those without to join in and help gather essential funds for research into the disease and a potential development of a cure.

Everyone taking part gets the chance to win a painting donated by artist Rhiannon and will receive a medal.

The creator of the 'maddest' hat gets awarded a trophy, both winners to be announced at Y Porth Hotel, post walk.

In the Mad Hatter theme, there will be tea party drinks and cakes at the finish.

Participants can sign up online, and there is a minimum sponsorship fee, with the option to download the sponsorship form to raise more funds if desired.

There are three different walks available, all commencing and concluding at Y Porth Hotel.

Route A takes about half an hour, Route B is approximately two hours, and Route C rounds off at the four-hour mark.

In the UK, about 153,000 individuals are diagnosed with Parkinson's, with more than 7,500 people in Wales.

Parkinson’s UK, a leading charity operating out of the UK, works tirelessly towards finding a cure and improving the quality of life of those impacted.
