Raise awareness of tremor and celebrate summer your way and meet others. Why not have a picnic with your friends, a BBQ with your family, or tea and scones in the park.
The aim of the Summer Tea Party is to provide people with neurological tremor (including essential tremor and orthostatic tremor) a voice and raise awareness whilst having fun. Why not share your personal story and personal coping tips with others? Or simply share your Summer Tea Party pictures using the hashtag #NTFTeaparty.
When meeting others people ensure you follow Government Covid guidelines.
Countdown until the Summer Tea Party begins!
Why raise awareness of neurological tremor?
- Essential tremor is considered as one of the most common neurological movement disorders.
- Essential tremor affects over one million people in the UK, 10-million in the USA and millions more worldwide.
- Essential tremor is a progressive neurological disorder. At least 5% of all cases of essential tremor are in childhood.
- It is estimated that 60% of all cases are inherited.
- Essential tremor is often confused with Parkinson’s. Essential tremor is estimated to be 8–10 times more common than Parkinson’s.
