A CHARITY is urging people to get ready to welcome the sun and bring a festival vibe to the area this summer.

Parkinson’s UK has created Garden Gathering, a Chichester fundraising scheme to encourage people across the country to host mini-festivals in their gardens to raise vital funds for Parkinson’s research.

Jenni Green, regional fundraiser for Parkinson’s UK in South Central, says: ‘Garden Gathering is the perfect opportunity to bring together friends and family, while raising money for a worthwhile cause. You can be as creative as you like.’

All money raised from the scheme will help the charity support everyone affected by Parkinson’s across the Chichester area and Emsworth.
