Christmas Carol Concert - Sunday 1 December

Join us on Sunday 1 December for our annual Carol Concert at the beautiful and historic church of St Lawrence in West Wycombe (HP14 3AP). The concert will start at 2.30pm and finish around 4.30pm. There will be performances from local musicians, Christmas readings and of course some classic Christmas carols for everyone to sing along to. There will be tea, coffee and cake served at the interval and a chance to win a lovely Christmas gift from the raffle. There is plenty of parking on site. Tickets are £6 for adults and £1 for children. They can be purchased in advance by emailing Janet Dell at janet_dell2003@yahoo.co.uk or Alison Rimmer at alir08@hotmail.co.uk, or purchased on entry on the day.

Shop at Amazon, support the charity

If, like many of us, you are a regular customer of Amazon then did you know they run a charitable donations scheme called Amazon Smile? Amazon Smile is a separate website that offers exactly the same products at the same prices as the main website. The only difference is that Amazon donate 0.5% of the net purchase price to your chosen charity. So why not switch to purchasing products through https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ and select the Motor Neurone Disease Association as your chosen charity?

Could you be our new branch Chair?

We are currently seeking a new Chair to lead our Branch after our previous Chair stepped down at our recent AGM.

This is a voluntary role that requires around 2-3 hours commitment per week. It involves organising and running Committee meetings, supporting Branch volunteers and fundraisers, ensuring Branch compliance with the charity's policies and being a local ambassador for the Association. All expenses are reimbursed.

We are seeking someone with good leadership, communication, facilitation and delegation skills. If you would like more information please contact volunteering@mndassociation.org or call Jo Campbell on 03453 751839.

Could you be an Association Visitor (AV)?

Do you enjoy listening to and helping people? Are you looking for a volunteering role where you can do just that and fit it in around your family, studies or other commitments?

By becoming an Association Visitor (AV), you can make a real difference to the lives of people affected by motor neurone disease (MND).

Visitors offer free and confidential emotional support which helps to reduce the sense of isolation experienced by many people affected by the disease. They also provide information about the Association and other services that helps people to make informed choices.

As an AV you will keep in regular contact with people with MND, their families and carers. This can be done either by phone, email or face-to-face visits, depending on what suits you and the person you are supporting.

Join our local team and make new friends - use your existing skills and learn new ones!

To find out more about becoming an Association Visitor please visit https://volunteering.mndassociation.org or call Jo Campbell on 03453 751839.

JustGiving page for donations to the Branch

If you or your family or friends wish to make a donation to the Branch for any reason, you can now do so by means of a JustGiving page that we have set up for that purpose at: www.justgiving.com/chilternmnda

The page will accept text donations to 70070 using the code MNDA66 as well as by credit card, is completely secure and has the great advantage to our Treasurer that it will automatically claim Gift Aid on donations that qualify, and that increases the amount donated by 25% at no cost to the donor.
