Thank you for your support in 2022!
Firstly, we'd like to say on behalf of the National Tremor Foundation an enormous thank you for your support in 2022!
A sincere thank you to NTF Honorary President Lord Julian Fellowes, who has essential tremor, for his continued support. He has encouraged and inspired many people to open up about essential tremor through television and media which has brought the spotlight to the disorder and the NTF.
We would like to thank everyone that came and helped organise our fantastic Essential Tremor Open Day in Liverpool. Huge credit should be given to Support Groups Co-ordinator Jackie Farrell, who worked tirelessly with James Blann of Insightec, in the planning and preparation of this first in-person event post Covid. It was all the more frustrating therefore that Jackie was unable to attend herself, due to herself succumbing to Covid.
We would like to thank Coronation Street actor Rob Mallard, who has essential tremor. We are grateful for all his help raising awareness at our Essential Tremor Open Day in Liverpool. We appreciate Rob for speaking out about the disorder on numerous radio and television programmes. His support to us has been amazing!
A special thank you to our Essential Tremor Open Day Liverpool speakers:
Professor Leslie Findley, Retired Senior neurologist, Queen's Hospital, Essex, and Professor of Health Sciences, London University South Bank
Jeff Kilner, NTF Trustee
Dr Jay Panicker, Clinical Director for Neurology, The Walton Centre, Liverpool
Mr Jibril Farah, Consultant Neurosurgeon and clinical lead of the Functional and Stereotactic Neurosurgical Service, the Walton Centre, Liverpool
In addition we would like to thank all the open day volunteers who made the day special.
Thank you to everyone that got involved and raised awareness of essential tremor for National Essential Tremor Awareness (NETA) month in March - we look forward to NETA month 2023.
We are thankful for our partners who have supported us throughout the year. James Blann, from Insightec, has been a fantastic speaker and campaigner. He also took on the 16km Great South Run for the National Tremor Foundation and raised over £800.
We would like to thank Boston Scientific and their adventurous team of 15 neuromodulators who scaled Brecon Beacons and raised over £2500. Also we would like to thank our Ambassador Anthony Murphy who joined Boston Scientific on the challenge.
A special mention to:
Phil Alcock, British Nordic Walking Association
Professor Hayriye Cagnan, Oxford University
Professor Wady Gedroyc, St Mary’s Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare
Katie Harris, SOSA Dance, who arranged a fun Dance and Sing along Party, which raised over £60 towards supporting children with essential tremor.
Karen Hull, Neurophysiotherapist
Lupe Cunha for creating an inspirational Art workshop “Making your tremor work for you in Artmaking"
We are especially grateful to our individual donors who raised over £3000; your generosity has helped us support people with neurological tremor.
