Lloyd Addison’s Moveable Feast – putting Norwich on the national fundraising map for Parkinson’s UK
If you happen to be in Norwich city centre on the evening of Tuesday 19th September, you may witness one of the city’s largest and most enjoyable fund raising events in full (and probably quite jolly!) swing – Lloyd Addison’s Moveable Feast.
Founded 17 years ago, this multi restaurant dining event is a wonderful lasting legacy of former councillor and restaurateur Lloyd Addison, who lived with Parkinson’s for nearly 20 years. Lloyd was passionate about supporting Norwich and Norfolk’s culinary heritage and passionate about raising funds for Parkinson’s UK, and so the Moveable Feast was born.
His concept was simple – three courses, each eaten in a different city centre restaurant with the restaurant selection being made for you. Lloyd’s widow, Cynthia, organises this huge and highly successful ticketed event each year, with the help of just a handful of personal friends. For the past six years, Norfolk Food & Drink sponsors Cozens-Hardy solicitors have sponsored the Moveable Feast, and they work very closely with the organising committee each year to maximise the fundraising opportunities for Parkinson’s UK.
Last year the event raised a record total of £18,900 for the charity – which makes it one of the most successful annual volunteer-led fundraising events for Parkinson’s in the whole of the UK. While tickets sold out back in May, the organising committee is still keen to secure some more raffle prizes; if you would like to offer a raffle prize for this amazing event, please email Anna Stevenson: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To the 1121 participants, 22 restaurants and 65 Parkinson’s UK volunteers involved, we would like to wish you an amazing evening and hope that a fantastic amount is raised for this brilliant charity.
