Parkinson's UK Street Party Charity of the Year
Streets Alive has partnered up with Parkinson's UK as a leading charity for residents to raise funds for during street parties.
Residents feel community minded during street parties and their enthusiasm often turns to raising funds for a charity.
Streets Alive has chosen Parkinson's UK as an appropriate charity because it is during street parties that many people are reminded of the needs of more vulnerable and older people in their street.
Most people who get Parkinson's are aged 50 or over but younger people can get it too. It is a progressive neurological condition which affects 1 person in every 500 - about 127,000 people in the UK.
Raising funds at a street party can be done by holding a raffle or simply asking for donations.
We hope that of the 1000 people a day reading this street party website may be moved to support this worthwhile charity.
