Rockwell supporting The Matt Hampson Foundation and The Cure Parkinson’s Trust

Rockwell are pleased to confirm that we will be supporting Mike Tindall’s annual golf fundraiser in aid of The Matt Hampson Foundation and The Cure Parkinson’s Trust. Held on the Brabazon course at the famous Belfry golf club in Sutton Coldfield, the event consistently raises over £100,000 for charity.

The Matt Hampson Foundation offers advice, support, relief and/or treatment for anyone suffering serious injury or disability which has arisen from any cause, but in particular from participation in or training for any sport, sporting activity or other form of physical education or recreation. It was formed in 2010, and since has helped countless people with their injuries by providing mentoring and friendship, information and advice, technology and equipment, physiotherapy and use of the Get Busy Living Centre.

The Cure Parkinson’s Trust was founded in 2005 to change the way the scientific and medical community perceives Parkinson’s. CPT now has trials underway in the U.K, Australia and Europe and is in active collaboration with the Michael J Fox Foundation in the US. Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition for which there is currently no cure. Every hour, 2 people in the UK are told they have Parkinson’s and it is estimated that some 145,000 were diagnosed in 2018 alone. The result is that, whilst primarily affecting older people, around 1 adult in every 350 are diagnosed with the condition.
