Team Redfern, Mates against MND

Debbie Redfern, Jo and Tex Leece are a group of friends who are raising money for the MND Association through a series of challenges and activities and encouraging others to fundraise.

We were inspired to do this on behalf of Debbie’s husband Mike Redfern who is living with MND.

Mike was diagnosed with MND in 2015 and faces each day with fight and determination against this disease; so we have created Redfern’s MND Fightback Fund, (ref no 557405) bringing together fundraising efforts of friends, family and people who care to do something positive on his behalf.

#teamredfern and supporters have completed 10k runs, Ironman endurance triathlons, bike rides, tombolas, garden parties, raffles and ran a photography competition to create a charity calendar for 2020!   You can join in too just message us with your ideas!

Thank you to everyone who donates, every penny we raise as part of Redfern’s Fightback Fund will go directly to the MND Association, this not only helps fund vital research into finding a cure for MND, but also helps people like Mike and Debbie to cope with the practical and emotional challenges of MND.

Mike and Debbie have already benefitted from the MND Association, so we want to help other families in their situation.

Please show your support by donate as much as you can through this page.  Any amount large or small really does make a massive difference. Or if you want to help and join Team Redfern let us know!
