Fundraising Stories

In October two fundraising events managed to raise a combined amount of over $10,000 for Parkinson’s WA!

One event was the Knit and Natter Wednesday Craft Ladies who chose the Parkinson’s WA Morley Support Group as their chosen charity to fundraise for this year. A quilt was being raffled, in which tickets were sold by both The Morley Group and the Knit and Natter Craft Ladies. On the day, the Craft Ladies supplied a wonderful venue with a delicious spread of morning tea, a fete stall and a beautiful sunny day.

The Morley Group raised $2,422 and The Knit and Natter Group raised $3,348.25.

Which is a grand total of $5,770.25 raised for Parkinson’s WA!

Shirley, one of our Parkinson’s Nurse Specialists, joined the fundraiser and also drew the raffle. Thank you to the Morley Support Group, to everyone who attended the event and to those involved in raising such a significant amount.

Another fundraising event which was held in the last weekend of October, was the annual High Tea and Fashion Show to fundraise for Parkinson’s WA.

At this event where over 130 people attended, there was a high tea, entertainment, a fashion show by, ‘A Little Unique Fashion Boutique’ and a flower show from, ‘The Ann Cottril Geranium Society.’ Donations for the raffle were kindly donated from the shops in Garden City. Jo, one of our Parkinson’s Nurse Specialists joined the fundraising event, along with Jo, our Parkinsong Teacher who sung throughout the day and Jodie, from our Support Programs was in attendance as well.

Overall, the fundraiser raised over $5,000 for Parkinson’s WA.

A very big Thank You to Mary Easterbrook for organising this wonderful event at her home in Applecross.
