Parkinson’s is a debilitating condition affecting over 145,000 people in the UK and 10 million people worldwide. Co-Founded by Tom Issacs in 2005, The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) is a charitable organisation created by and for people living with Parkinson’s with one bold aim – to find a cure for Parkinson’s.

Harvey Cammell, Deputy Chairman of Bonhams UK, commented “Cure3 is a project Bonhams has been so proud to support since its inception, and we are truly excited to be hosting the exhibition for the third time at our New Bond Street Galleries in September. To have so many artists and designers of this calibre and diversity is phenomenal. The show and the sale will be an amazing opportunity to join the select band of previous cube collectors whilst at the same time generously contribute to this ground-breaking charity actively working to find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.”
CPT is the only Parkinson’s charitable organisation in the UK solely focussed on finding a cure for Parkinson’s. In its 15th anniversary year, CPT can look back over numerous landmark achievements it has helped fund and support towards this ultimate goal including:
• Trials into the re-purposing of existing drugs as an effective treatment for Parkinson’s and the launch of the International Linked Trials Programme (iLCT) in 2012.
• The consistent championing of the involvement of people with Parkinson’s in research design and delivery of new treatments – helping to potentially speed up clinical trials, as well as ensuring that they are relevant and deliverable.
• Funding pioneering research into the development of stem cell therapies for the treatment of Parkinson’s.
• Supporting the remarkable clinical trial, which also included the late Tom Issacs as
participant, involving ground-breaking surgery to deliver the protein GDNF direct to the brain using a specially designed delivery system. The trial was the subject of the award-winning BBC Documentary, The Parkinson’s Drug Trial: A Miracle Cure?
Charles Kirwan-Taylor, Chairman of Cure3, said “We are delighted to be partnering with Artwise curators and Bonhams to deliver the third edition of the unique art show, Cure 3. It is uplifting to see that even in the current environment so many incredible artists have once again donated their time and their talent to create artworks to be sold to raise funds for research with the potential to cure Parkinson’s.”
Cure3 is devised by Susie Allen and Laura Culpan from Artwise, the dynamic curatorial team behind the original RCA Secret postcard project. Cure3 has established itself as a critical and commercial success, securing plaudits from a host of international media including SKY News, BBC News, F.T, How To Spend It, The Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, The Observer Magazine, The Telegraph, The Art Newspaper, Wallpaper* and World of Interiors – as well as raising significant funds for the ongoing work of CPT.
In 2005, the goal of CPT was to render the charity redundant by finding a cure for Parkinson’s. In 2020, by Supporting Cure3, we can back the essential work carried out by The Cure Parkinson’s Trust and continue the legacy of Tom Isaacs with his aim of consigning Parkinson’s to a disease of the past.

NOTES TO EDITORS
Format of Selling Exhibition Please note that Cure3 is not an auction, each art work is individually priced by the artist and sold at this fixed price on line at www.cure3.co.uk
The works will be on preview at Bonhams from 5th September and sales will go live online from Tuesday 8th September 8am. All profits will go directly to The Cure Parkinson’s Trust, to fund research to slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s disease.
The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) takes a patient-centric approach to funding innovative projects and inspirational scientists with the potential to change the course of the condition and make a difference to the lives of people with Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s is a debilitating condition affecting over 145,000 people in the UK alone and 10 million people worldwide. It is a neurological disorder characterised by tremors, stiffness, slowness of movement and balance problems. It is predicted that 1 person in 37 will receive a diagnosis of Parkinson’s in their lifetime.
At CPT we believe that we are closer than ever to new treatments. For fifteen years, we have been committed to strategically funding research to find a cure for the condition once and for all. The charity’s International Linked Clinical Trials (iLCT) programme identifies potential new treatments by taking existing drugs used to treat other diseases and testing them as treatments for Parkinson’s. Our role is to develop clinical trials to understand if these drugs may be effective to slow, stop or even reverse the progression of Parkinson’s. We believe that our pioneering and collaborative approach to
research will one day soon, deliver curative treatments for Parkinson’s.
