We are delighted to announce that we are hosting a afternoon tea party in aid of our charity partner, Scottish Huntington's Association. When we say tea we actually mean GIN & PROSECCO!
Keep your diary clear for Saturday 22nd June for our party. The party starts at 1.30pm and runs onto 5.30pm. You are more than welcome to stay on after the event finishes however.
We will ensure we have plenty of prosecco and a selections of gins available on the day along with our usual stocked bar if you fancy something different.
Tickets are available now at the Rugby Club at the cost of £15 which includes a glass of Prosecco along with your afternoon tea essentials (sandwiches, cakes etc)
All proceeds raised will be donated to the Scottish Huntington's Association.
What is Huntington’s disease?
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a devastating neurological condition. Over the course of 15-25 years, from the first appearance of symptoms, people with the condition will lose the ability to walk, talk eat and care for themselves. The illness can cause mental ill health, profound changes in behaviour, a type of dementia and physical disability.
Each child of a parent with HD has a 50% chance of inheriting the same faulty gene.
In Scotland around 1,100 people have HD with a further 5,000 estimated to be living at high genetic risk of inheriting the gene that causes it.
As yet, there is no cure.
How does Scottish Huntington’s Association help?
Scottish Huntington’s Association has provided support to families living with Huntington’s disease in Scotland since 1989. Families can access help and advice from our dedicated HD Specialists who are based in nine services around Scotland.
Through these services, as well as our Youth Specialist Services, Management Clinics, Financial Wellbeing and Wellbeing Volunteer Services and Carers’ Support Groups, we provide expert practical and emotional support in a way that promotes respect and dignity and improves the quality of life for children and adults living with HD
