Welcome to the Oxfordshire Branch

The branch is run entirely by volunteers and aims to provide the best possible support to local people with MND, their carers and their families. We also  raise funds and awareness of the disease.

Regular friendly and informative support meetings are held in Abingdon and Banbury on alternate months. There are open meetings twice a year in Oxford and a summer visit to a local garden centre or place of interest. We also have trained Association Visitors who are there to offer support on an individual basis.
  
Our popular annual branch Walk to D’feet takes place in Blenheim Palace Park in October. Please contact us for more information and see details of branch events.

We have put our meetings on hold for the moment but we are still supporting people with MND and their families in Oxfordshire by phone calls, email, text and online meetings.

For information about how we can help please get in touch with the branch contact.

Susan Blackett Art Exhibition and Sale - on 3rd November 2020 an online exhibition and sale of Susan's paintings was held and joined by over 120 family, friends, MND Association supporters  and art enthusiasts.
