Hold a PDBay Charity Event for Parkinsons

12 April 2010

Fa' Joe's Bar, Lurgan and The Parkinson's Disease Society have provided the Federation with Information and downloadable resources to encourage its members to hold their own eBay style 'PDBay' Auction events.

To download the necessary documents please visit our new Charity section by clicking on 'Industry Support > Charity Ideas & Events' and choosing the 'PDBay' Category. "Parkinson's - often a forgotten condition - is a debilitating disease that affects over 4000 people in N.Ireland both young and old, and their families. Parkinsons UK is dedicated to providing fair care for parkinsons sufferers who currently do not get adequate access in N.Ireland to therapy services that could make a real difference to them in living with this disease. The support of Ulsterpubs and their members could go a long way to helping patients and their familiies while at the same time providing an entertaining night for pub clientelle. Please find attached a draft poster for pubs to announce the evening, a simple inventory sheet for managing the auction items and some background on the work conducted by Parkinson's UK. The event is simple to run - customers bring in items for auction, half the proceeds go to support Parkinson's sufferers and the customer keeps the rest. It promises to be a lively night for a great cause. Jeff (Fa' Joe's)"
