Happy 1st Birthday York Group!
Two years ago at the regional conference in York, Chair of Trustees, Alun Owen, announced that they were looking for a new group of volunteers in York.
For years a separate charity, York against MND, provided excellent care and support to people in the area. It was therefore a worry and a challenge when this charity announced that they was having to close.
Since the 2015 York Conference, people have been gradually joining together and we have reached our goal of achieving a formal York Group. This has filled the gap left by ‘York against MND’ and this fledgling group are now a local point of contact and raise the profile of MND in the York area.
Two years on and the group are celebrating their first successful year. Happy Birthday and good luck for the future!
