Garden party to say ‘Thank you’
This beautiful photo was taken in the grounds of Boughton House during a garden party marking the MND Association's 40th anniversary.
Around 250 specially invited volunteers were treated to a tour of the House by the Duke of Buccleuch before being given the opportunity to spend time in the gardens, meet the Association's founders, hear from research scientists and listen to a speech by Jane Hawking, wife of the Association's late patron Professor Stephen Hawking.
The garden party was held on Friday 21 June – Global MND Awareness Day.
The second major event marking the anniversary year will be an art exhibition in London’s South Bank this October.
