Our next Open Meeting will be held from 3-5pm on Sunday 6 December and it will be our seasonal Christmas party! We will be holding the party by Zoom so everyone can join in from home. It would have been wonderful to meet up in person, but we hope you will all join us for this remote get together to exchange seasonal greetings. We are delighted that our branch Patron, Jeremy Vine, will be conducting one of his excellent quizzes online, helped by his daughter Anna. The two of them held a remote quiz earlier in the year to mark the 25th Anniversary since our branch was set up, and it was a huge success. You can relive the event here. As it's online, the quiz is non-competitive - there is no 'winner' so it is all relaxed. Everyone is invited to use the 'chat' function to submit answers, report their scores, remember loved ones, ask for shout outs, or you can just watch. Whatever you choose to do, it's bound to be great fun! We will send out final details, with instructions on how to connect nearer the time. We do hope you'll join us!
We have two Support Groups for people living with MND and their carers.
- The West London Support Group is a monthly support group offering an opportunity for those living with MND to share their thoughts, have a friendly chat, and seek support. The next meeting is on Tuesday 15 December from 11-12am.
- The Pan London Group for Carers offers similar support, focusing on carers. These meetings take place on the first Tuesday of the month at 11am. The next is on Tuesday 1 December.
We warmly welcome you to join us. Currently all support group meetings are being held online. To find out more, please contact Lisa Burnard.
A big well done to all of the volunteers and supporters who raised money for our virtual walk. Although the event did not take place in the usual way due to COVID-19, we thank you for all your fantastic individual efforts. If you want to, there is still time to donate and share our JustGiving page for the walk.
You can see presentations from some of our past open meetings on our YouTube channel.
Our branch patron is author, journalist and news presenter Jeremy Vine, who is also a patron of the MND Association. He supports many national events.
