Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page. We really hope you will help us raise as much as possible for the MND association Scarborough and Bridlington Group.
Please please please help us raise our target amount for this fantastic local charity.
As a local firm every year we choose a local charity to support, for 2019 we have chosen MND association Scarborough & Bridlington group; which is a charity very close to our managing Directors heart as his father very sadly passed away from this awful condition. At the time the family didn’t know there was anywhere to turn, their world was turned upside down as this relentless disease stole a wonderful man from them before their eyes. Nothing hurts like having a loved one snatched from you before their time and that is why we want to raise money and awareness of MNDa so that others going through the same know there is someone there, someone who can help & talk to; to let them know they are not alone, to let them know about the Bridlington & Scarborough group, the group covers the Scarborough, Bridlington, Whitby & Rydale areas and is run entirely by volunteers providing a warm welcome and friendship, offering information, advice and support with regular meeting with the chance to meet others in a similar situation who can share their experience and knowledge. The group can also help with funding for specialist equipment and services.
Thank you all for helping us.
In case you are not aware motor neurone disease (MND) describes a condition that affects the nerves in the brain and spinal cord; it can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breath. It affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time, it is a fatal condition, it kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis, it cannot be stopped or reversed and there is no cure, yet, but there are ways to make suffers lives better and slightly easier.
