Paul Goddard - Instructor

Our instructor, Paul Goddard, is an award-winning Neurological Rehabilitation Therapist, with many years' experience in the design and development of his own unique exercise provision.    He is PD Warrior-trained, a British Nordic walking instructor who is endorsed by INWA (International Nordic Walking Association, a full protocol TMW instructor (Tai Chi Movements for Well-being), Seated Exercise and Smovey instructor.

Paul provides highly motivational, enthusiastic and enjoyable classes in which he shares his knowledge of PD and explains how and why his exercise programme addresses particular symptoms.  As one of our attendees said "Paul gives confidence almost intravenously".

Justyna Danisewicz - Membership Secretary

Justyna came upon us by chance when she wandered into a volunteer office  wanting to offer her services for some voluntary work.   She has been a tremendous asset with her advanced Excel and technology skills!

David Ellis - Class volunteer and seeker of funds!

David attends both our Tuesday PD Challenger classes and sets the room up prior to Paul's arrival, ensures attendance registers are maintained, keeps a watchful eye on the class from the back to ensure everyone’s safety, administers first aid if required and also makes very helpful suggestions to Deb as to whom she might approach in his extensive network to secure some funding!
