Make the most of Spring and host a Tulip Cream Tea event in your home with family and friends, or at work with colleagues, in support of people living with Parkinson’s.
You are on your way to making a tangible difference for our Parkinson’s community in New Zealand.
With over 11,500 people living with Parkinson’s, contributions from your Tulip Cream Tea will support the wide range of services Parkinson's NZ provides people living with Parkinson’s and their whānau.
Plan your Tulip Cream Tea
In three easy steps, you can register your event, set up your fundraising page and begin to plan your Tulip Cream Tea.
Step 1: Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your name, your street address (so we can send you your host pack), the best contact phone number to call you on and how many people you plan to host at your Tulip Cream Tea.
Step 2: We will send you your host pack within 2 weeks of your registration (if you require it earlier, please email email@example.com to let us know).
Step 3: Create your own fundraising page on this link to maximise your fundraising potential. Once created you can share on your own social media platforms and send the link to friends, colleagues and family members. This will make sure you raise the most funds possible to help people with Parkinson's.
Step 4: Get planning. The world is your creative tulip – from a simple afternoon tea to a more elaborate “high tea” occasion, your Tulip Cream Tea is entirely yours to mastermind!
A member of our team will be in touch with you soon to say welcome to the Tulip Cream Tea hosting family and to discuss your event – we pride ourselves on our “personal touch” and we love to know who our hosts are and what you have planned.
Our Gift to our Special Hosts
The first 50 people to register as a Tulip Cream Tea host (and pledge to raise $200 or more) will receive a fantastic gift pack. The pack includes Dilmah Tea Premium, a Lewis Road Creamery milk and cream product voucher, a mixing spatula, a cake product and a fragrant Trio Soy Candle to enhance your event.

At home or at work - Anyone can host a Tulip Cream Tea
The Parkinson’s Tulip Cream Tea is an opportunity for people in our community to host a fun event where proceeds help people with Parkinson's to receive vital services.
Tulip Cream Tea events can be as simple as a morning tea in the home or workplace, or a more elaborate occasion at a venue or cafe.

Support your local florist and be sure to have fresh Tulips at your Tulip Cream Tea.
Tulips are the flower of our charity - Parkinson’s New Zealand - A symbol of hope which has been associated with awareness about the neurological condition since the early-1980's. Tulip Cream Tea events are held in spring when Tulip’s bloom.
