The 29th Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon, held on Tuesday 9 May 2017, at Merchant Taylors’ Hall , generously supported by headline sponsor CRUX Asset Management as well as Smith & Williamson and eprivateclient and thewealthnet's parent company, PAM Insight, has raised over £75,000 for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT). 

Over 600 wealth management professionals enjoyed The Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon, a unique networking event which has developed a loyal following over 29 years, and is now a firmly established event within the City’s social calendar. 

The Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon includes servings of ethically sourced gulls’ eggs, a delicacy only available for a few weeks each year, as well as traditional accompaniments, including smoked salmon and delicious cheese. 

“We are very grateful for the wide and substantial support that this crucial event in aid of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust has received,” commented Rupert Phelps, chairman of the Gulls’ Eggs Committee. “It is wonderful to see both perennial supporters and newer faces now coming every year. In addition to really strong attendance, the sponsors and advertisers have come together to make a truly significant contribution to the critical research work of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust.” 

President and co-founder of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust, Tom Isaacs, added. “This is the second year we have been fortunate enough to be the sole beneficiaries of The Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon and once again we were amazed by the generosity of those who attended. The funds raised will be allocated to our cutting edge research programme which continues to generate ground-breaking science and prospective new treatments which have the capacity to slow, stop or even reverse Parkinson’s.”

Parkinson’s is a progressive and all-consuming neurological disorder characterised by the presence of tremors, stiffness, slowness of movement and balance problems. There is an urgent need to find new and more effective treatments to change the course of the disease and ultimately a cure. 

The Cure Parkinson’s Trust is the only charity in the UK solely dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease and funds clinical trials of potential new treatments to slow, stop and reverse the disease. 

Next year will be the 30th anniversary of The Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon, which will be held on 15 May 2018, at Merchant Taylors’ Hall, 12:30pm - 2.30pm. For all sponsorship queries please contact Maisie Johnson on 020 7487 3892 or email gulls.eggs@cureparkinsons.org.uk
