Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Norman Palmer was an old friend of mine who sadly died from MND in 2016. He had become an eminent lawyer, particularly in the field of cultural property. Although Norman never had a driving licence, he loved old cars and had a large collection in his barn in Wales. One of them was Jemima, a 1937 Morris Eight. She had not been driven for several years and needed work to get her back on the road. I wanted to do something worthwhile in Norman's memory and arranged with his widow Ruth for Jemima to be brought to Norfolk for repairs. She's up and running again and has been the focus of my fundraising campaign for MND research. She has also helped in various events in aid of the Norfolk & Waveney branch of the MND Association.

My original plan involved a road trip in Jemima from John O' Groats to Land's End but this was dependent on getting suitable sponsorship. Unfortunately this has not materialised so I have had to abandon the idea of a long-distance trip in her.

MND is such a cruel disease and your donation will fund research aiming to free the world from it.
