Birmingham’s first Parkinson’s UK Secret Supper event took place on 9 April to raise money for the charity, with 165 guests turning up to enjoy a unique, multi dining experience around St Paul’s Square in the Jewellery Quarter.
The event raised an outstanding £6,778 and will help fund the incredible work Parkinson’s UK do in pioneering medical research.
Guests started their evening with a drink’s reception at The Jam House, kindly sponsored by local businesses, FRAHA Marketing & Advertising, Sonny’s Jewellery, and Jones Davey Executive Legal Search Consultants, and were then given sealed envelopes, which revealed where they would be eating – everything was kept top secret until that moment!
The six restaurants that hosted the Secret Supper were Anderson’s Bar & Grill, Cucina Rustica, Saint Paul’s House, Locanta, Pasta Di Piazza and The Jam House.
Gayle Kelly, Regional Fundraiser said: “Our first Secret Supper event was such a huge success and seeing so many people walking to the different restaurants, chatting to new friends and having fun was wonderful. It was great to be able to raise awareness of Parkinson’s to a new audience and the amount raised is simply fantastic.
Thank you to everyone who supported us and here’s to the next one!”
