We need people willing to help in many ways, from joining our committee planning for the future, running fund raising events, helping with social media, helping with our web site or helping out at our events.

Whatever your skills we can you them.  Please contact Clive Hudson by email  chair@mnda-eastkent.org.uk or if you live outside of East Kent please contact Claire Tuckett by email claire.tuckett@mndassociation.org

Awareness raising at Dover College

On Monday 9th October I attended morning assembly at Dover College to talk about motor neurone disease and the MNDA.

The college had lost a much loved member of staff to MND and the students have decided to support MNDA through the school year and many events are planned.

The presentation was about MND/Kennedy’s Disease, and how the MNDA supports people and families affected by these diseases.

The presentation focussed on the celebrities the student might know of,  who support MNDA such as Professor Stephen Hawking, Benedict Cumberbatch, Charlotte Hawkins, Eddie Redmayne and Stuart Broad.

Also featured were inspirational people living with MND/Kennedy’s Disease, who do everything they can to raise awareness of MND and to raise funds for MNDA.  People like Mark Styles who was instrumental in getting Kent County Council to be the first council to sign the MNDA Charter, Jason Liversedge who despite being in a wheel chair managed to ascend Snowdon and also to abseil off the Humber Bridge and EyeGazeArtist, Sarah Ezekial who creates wonderful works of art using only her eyes.

Thanks to students and staff at Dover College for supporting MNDA and we look forward to hearing about your future activities.
