Pub party brings in the money


A PARTY in the pub raised £1,200 for Parkinson’s UK — despite the weather putting paid to the day’s outdoor entertainment.

Katie Scott (43) is aiming to raise cash and awareness after both she and her father, Mick Barker, were diagnosed with the condition.

The Winter Green at Waverley was the venue for the funday, and the total raised was increased thanks to Northend.

The print services firm, which had already provided free posters for the event, added a £300 donation to take the day’s total to £1,500.

Katie, of Treeton, said: “I’ve been completely overwhelmed by the amount of support I have received.

“Parkinson’s disease is a very lonely journey at times, but this has shown me the true power of love and support.

“Then the bad weather on Saturday (2) prevented any of our outdoor plans, but despite all this the day raised a huge amount, which was then topped up by Northend.

“With the sponsorship already received for our skydive, this brings our grand total to over £5,000.”

Katie was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2020 — just three years after dad Mick. The condition is not classed as hereditary.

The skydive in Nottingham — postponed until October 25 because of strong winds — includes Katie’s daughter Danielle and stepson Connor also taking part.
