People living with MND, families, and carers & Recently affected support group

Local people living with MND, their families and carers are invited to join us at 2.30pm at Dobbies, together with people recently affected by MND. A very informal gathering to chat and enjoy each other's company with tea and cake.

About us

Three MND Association Visitors in the Kings Lynn and West Norfolk area offer confidential, emotional support and accurate information to people with MND, their families and carers, helping them to access the right services and equipment. These trained volunteers act as a point of contact for people living with MND, staying in touch by phone, email or face to face visits.

Support meetings for people with MND, their families and carers are held every three months at the Tapping House Hospice in Hillington. Former carers and family members are also very welcome to attend. Meetings normally start at 11.00 with coffee and a relevant speaker, followed by a light lunch.

An informal Carers’ Friendship Group meets monthly for coffee, every third Wednesday, at 11.00 am in the Café at Tapping House, for carers and former carers to chat and exchange information and ideas.

The Support Group fundraising events aim to provide funds for small ‘Care Grants’ to local people with MND, following requests to the Association from health care professionals or ‘Quality of Life Grants’ requested by Association Visitors, health care professionals or people with MND.

Walk to D'feet Sandringham 2022 - 

Thank you to all 65 people who were able to join us at Sandringham on Saturday – despite the shocking weather forecast after the hot week.

The rain held off for most of the walk, but we really appreciated the shelter of the canopy for picnics and chatting together afterwards!

Incredibly generous donations from so many people have added over £700 to our local Kings Lynn Group funds too.

We are especially grateful to Emily who presented us with a cheque for £150 as sponsorship for her Scout badge and to Louise and Paul who kindly provided first aid cover.
