The South Lancs Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association has launched an emergency appeal for donations to maintain their vital support for people living with MND, a terminal illness.

Local people with MND turn to the South Lancs Branch for advice, face-to-face meetings and importantly can apply for financial grants to help improve their quality of life.

The MND Association expect to lose over £2 million this year due to the cancellation of community and sporting events as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But our fight against MND can’t be delayed. Local people affected by the disease need our support now, they need their voices heard today.

But with the COVID-19 restrictions continuing, volunteers at the South Lancs Branch are determined to find other ways to raise money to continue supporting local people facing the devastating illness. 

Our branch is run entirely by volunteers and provides vital support and services support to local people with MND, their families, carers and those close to them.

People with MND are extremely vulnerable and are relying on our help and support now more than ever.

Around 50 people are living with this brutal disease in the South Lancs area. MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing disease which affects the brain and spinal cord. It attacks the nerves that control movement and eventually leaves people unable to move, communicate or breathe. It kills a third of people within a year of diagnosis and half within two years. There is no cure.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this, and with best wishes for a safe, happy and healthy winter season from the South Lancs Branch
