Clare Rozier starts her silence Tonight, at 7pm

On Sunday 15th October at 7pm until Tuesday 17th at 7am I will be doing Silence Speaks in memory of my amazing Dad (David Ironmonger).

David Alan Ironmonger

My dad was such an amazing man, always smiling, loved life and everybody loved him. In 2016 Dad was diagnosed with MND, which was a great shock to himself and the family. Over the year Dad lost control of his legs, arms, couldn’t feed himself, and it got so exhausting for him to talk. He had carers 3 times a day to hoist him out of bed, wash, shave, brush his teeth, etc. 

My Mum, Brother,  Husband and myself  would also help with his care. We would take him out in his electric chair and mobility car so he could enjoy the places he loved to go and see. My dad was so brave and battled through this cruel time and would always be smiling. 

Sadly on July 16th 2017, Dad lost his battle to this cruel disease. Myself, brother and my mum were all by his bedside when he died, and he would still try and smile right to the end. 

I miss my Dad so much and think about him everyday.  

I am doing this as I have a CHOICE too.. My Dad Never had a CHOICE. 

I would love to be able to help someone else with MND by raising money. 

I so wish there was a cure for this wicked and cruel disease.

Please support me by visiting www.JustGiving.com/clare-rozier1 donating what you can afford to help people living with MND. 

Thank you for reading and huge thanks to all donors.

Tea by The Sea

Our first Tea by The Sea was held at the Botany Bay Hotel, Kingsgate, Thanet on Wednesday 28th September.

We had six people present 3 of whom had not previously attended one of our meetings.

We enjoyed a good chat with tea and scones and all present were agreed the idea of a local meeting held monthly was a good idea,  especially as they felt unable to travel to other meeting held further away in Kent.

Lynn Hudson, Christine Rawlins, John Rawlins, John Sturges, Clive Hudson, Philomena Lawrence.

Tea by The Sea is on the last Wednesday of October (25th) and November (29th) at the Botany Bay Hotel, Kingsgate at 3pm.  At the  November meeting we will review our plans for 2018.
