Altogether a total of £506.44 was collected, which will help the Branch continue its vital services to local people living with Motor Neurone Disease.

 

Branch Chairman, Simon Edmands, said he was very grateful to everyone who had donated so generously to the collection, adding, ‘I would especially like to thank all the Branch members and supporters who gave up their time throughout the day to help collect.’

 

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a rapidly progressive terminal neurological condition which kills, on average, six people every day within the UK. It can leave people unable to walk, talk or even feed themselves, whilst their mind and senses invariably remain unaffected. Average life expectancy from diagnosis is just 14 months and, as yet, there is no cure or effective treatment.

 

The East Surrey Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) provides care and support to around 60 people living with MND throughout the East Surrey area, as well as helping to fund vital research into the disease itself.
