DIY Fundraising

Many people living with MND tell us that fundraising gives them a sense of empowerment. Fundraising is a fantastic way to involve friends and family, by fighting back against the disease and it also raises much needed awareness.

We will support you in whatever you do and provide you with branded fundraising materials:
