The 14th annual Lloyd Addison Moveable Feast raised its highest total yet, bringing in £12,179 for Parkinson’s UK.
The event, sponsored by Cozens Hardy, saw 830 guests take part on Tuesday, September 17, being split into groups to enjoy three courses at three of the 18 participating restaurants in the city.
The event was founded by former county councillor and restaurateur Lloyd Addison, who lived with Parkinson’s for a number of years before he died in 2008.
Mr Addison’s wife, Cynthia, said: “Thank you to all who bought tickets and gave generously on the night. We are thrilled to have raised more than ever before and it wouldn’t have been possible without you.
“Lloyd would be so pleased to see the success of the Moveable Feast which continues in his name to raise awareness of Parkinson’s and funds for research.”
Each of the Feast’s diners score their main meal out of 10 to determine the ‘restaurant of the year’ award, with Tombland pub the Edith Cavell’s restaurant, Prime, taking the title.
Next year’s Moveable Feast will be held on Tuesday, September 23, and tickets are already on sale from Mrs Addison on 01603 617269 or firstname.lastname@example.org
