We fund research and raise awareness of MND to help anyone touched by MND.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My lovely Dad has recently been diagnosed with a Motor Neuron Disease. My Nana (his mum) died with the same diagnosis and so as a family we know what a devastating condition we are up against.

Raising money to support research and development of treatments for this rare condition is a priority.

The Tenfoot Swim event takes place on Saturday 8th July and is a 5.5 km sea swim from Tenby to Saundersfoot. This event is donating proceeds to the “My Name’5 Doddie Foundation” (and one other charity)


If you feel able to support this charity with further donations, it would be great if you could sponsor “Team Eckington”

- Alec Simpson (husband)

- Claire du Toit (fabulous friend) 

- Mark Stevens (fabulous friend)

Not only are they crazy (and fit) enough to swim this distance in the sea, they have agreed to raise even more money for the “My Name’5 Doddie Foundation” via this fundraising page 

(I will be supporting them wholeheartedly from the shoreline 🤣)

I have extended my original target (£500) as this page has invited many generous donations already- far more than I expected (Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far)

Any support that you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
