Kate and Daniel's National Three Peaks Challenge

Following the devastating diagnoses her father received in November 2020, Kate Bielby and her partner Daniel are taking on the Three Peaks Challenge this September.

Myself and Daniel will be starting our fundraising journey this summer, by taking on the National Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday 3rd September 2022 (within 24 hours), to raise as much money and awareness that we possibly can for Motor Neurone Disease. Our family was dealt the devastating news back in November 2020, that my Dad had developed this cruel disease, and since then he has amazed us all with his grit and determination to fight this with all he's got.- Kate Bielby

You can do it Kate and Daniel! The Chiltern Branch is behind you every step of the way.

Can you help them hit their target?

Refreshments will be available and all proceeds will go to the Chiltern Branch of the MND Association to help local people living with the disease. Entry to the Chenies Manor Gardens is £5pp on the day, with no charge for children or people living with MND, nor for one carer accompanying them.

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:

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.

Donations in memory of a loved one

We are sometimes asked by people who have lost their loved ones to MND how to ensure that any donations from family and friends in their memory come to the local Branch of the MND Association - if that is the family's wish.

If you have any funeral donations that you'd like to go specifically to the branch then most Funeral Directors can arrange this on behalf of the family. Once the donations have been received please ask them to contact our Treasurer John Jefkins on 01494 874507 or email

We do appreciate receiving donations of this kind and you can be assured that they will be put to good use in support of others in the Branch area living with MND.

If you wish such donations to be put towards any particular aspect of the Association’s work – and some families specify research – please make sure that the Branch is aware of any specific wishes you may have so that we can inform staff at head office. We can then ensure that your wishes are respected.
