Why Not Garden Gather this summer?


Dear readers,

As a passionate gardener, I spend as much time in the fresh air as possible, and love to entertain outdoors in Ireland during the summer.

That’s why I’m delighted to support Garden Gathering, a new feel good fundraiser for Parkinson’s UK, urging people across the country to get together with loved ones, bringing a fun, festival vibe to their gardens.

No matter how big or small your garden, I’m encouraging everyone to plan a Garden Gathering on Saturday July 1, or you can just pick your own date, it’s up to you.

Your Garden Gathering event can be as creative as you like, and Parkinson’s UK has created a special fundraising pack full of tips and goodies, including festival wristbands, a teepee donation box, and a festival themed fundraising game, to help you get in the mood for fun.

All money raised from Garden Gathering will help Parkinson’s UK to support the 127,000 people living with Parkinson’s in the UK, as well as funding urgently needed treatments that can slow, stop or even prevent the condition.

To get your fundraising pack, contact gardengathering@parkinsons.org.uk, call 0800 138 6593, or visit parkinsons.org.uk/gardengathering.

Let’s make summer special.
