A SINGER and ac­tress will make a whis­tle-stop tour of Bucks in an elec­tric Smart car called Betsy – and busi­nesses can spon­sor her to pay a visit.

Univer­sal Care, an agency which pro­vides home care in Buck­ing­hamshire and Berk­shire, is invit­ing busi­nesses to pledge £100 to its Parkin­son’s fundrais­ing cam­paign in ex­change for a visit from ac­claimed singer and ac­tress Patti Boulaye.

She will travel around South Buck­ing­hamshire on Novem­ber 18 to mark the first an­niver­sary of Univer­sal Care get­ting the keys to the en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly car and to raise money and aware­ness of the pro­gres­sive neu­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tion.

Chair­man of Univer­sal Care Peter Cul­limore said: Smart car Betsy “At Univer­sal Care we help to look after many clients who are Parkin­son’s suf­fer­ers and I re­alise how dif­fi­cult life can be for many of them.

“This cel­e­bra­tion Betsy’s birth­day with of the help of Patti Boulaye will be our small ef­fort to help them. The money we raise will be split be­tween Parkin­son­sUK to help them with their re­search and the lo­cal group which pro­vides prac­ti­cal support.”

You can also get in­volved in Univer­sal Care’s fundraiser ei­ther by mak­ing a do­na­tion through its Just­Giv­ing page, or by en­ter­ing a com­pe­ti­tion.

The care agency will fill Betsy full of bal­loons and in­vite peo­ple to guess the num­ber in there. The prize will be five tick­ets to see a Christ­mas con­cert in a sec­ond floor box at the Royal Al­bert Hall.
