Branch Fundraising Ball - Saturday 19 October
It isn’t too late to get tickets for our Fundraising Ball, which will take place on Saturday 19th October at Moor Hall, Cookham SL6 9QH.

The evening will commence at 6:30pm with a welcome drink as you arrive. Local photographers ‘Photography by Us’ will take formal shots of people arriving in their finest attire, then throughout the evening a photo booth will be available for fun pictures, all of which can be purchased on the night. There will also be a close-up magician, Sam Strange, to entertain you before you are seated for your three-course dinner.

Entertainment for the evening will be provided by Gravity. A raffle and auction will take place later in the evening with a number of excellent items.

Tickets are £65 per head and available by emailing Nicola Lewington at nicola.lewington@sky.com.

Annual Regional Conference - 21st September

Come meet us at our annual regional conference in Exeter on Saturday 21 September from 10am to 4pm. The main focus of the day will be on the needs and interests of people living with MND, their families and carers. Volunteers and people with an interest in MND are also welcome. They'll be an opportunity to hear, and ask questions, about the latest care services and support available and the most up to date information about research. They'll also be a chance to sample innovative products and services. There is no fee to attend and lunch and refreshments are provided.

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.
