We raise funds to enable us to provide practical help and information to people with MND, and to fund research that we hope will develop effective alleviating treatment for MND and, one day, find a cure.

We receive no national or local government funding and are entirely reliant on our own fund raising efforts and the generosity of our supporters.

10k Walk and Pride Celebration

Saturday 8 June 2024 at 10am

We are delighted that this year the West London Queer Project is once again holding a walk in support of our branch. 

The Walk will be a gentle 10k and will start in Hammersmith and follow a route along the Thames Path, through Barnes and Mortlake, ending in Chiswick at the Black Lion pub. The walk will be followed by food, drinks and fun entertainment in celebration of Pride Month. We hope lots of you will come along and join in. It’s a great opportunity to get together with fellow branch members, meet new people, enjoy a great scenic walk and help raise money too. The perfect combination! We’ll send out further details in our monthly emails, and you can find out more on the WLQP website: https://www.wlqp.org/event-details/10k-walk-celebration 

Last year’s walk was great fun and this year’s is bound to be even better. Do put the date in your diary.

Some of our past events and fundraisers

A fantastic bucket collection at Brentford FC

We were given a wonderful opportunity by Brentford Football Club to raise funds, with a bucket collection at their match on Saturday 7 May 2022. Brentford FC were promoted last year to the Premiership, so they have been playing the top sides in the country in their spacious new stadium. Their match against Southampton promised a very large crowd.

The club’s generous offer included 12 tickets for collectors to watch the match. Plus, extra tickets for people living with MND and their carers, with easy access to parking nearby.

The collection, and some background on MND, was publicised by the Club. A Just Giving page for this event was set up too, with QR codes displayed on the collection buckets to make it easy for those without cash to donate.

Thanks to all these efforts over £1650 was raised. A truly fantastic sum!


West London Queer Project 10k Walk and Pride Celebration

In lieu of our usual Bushy Park Walk this year, we were honoured to participate in the West London Queer Project 10k Walk and Pride Celebration, where funds were raised for MND in support of our branch member Zoe Nixon, who is living with MND. 

The event took place on 3 June 2023 at Furnivall Gardens, Hammersmith W6 and was graced by the presence of notable figures such as Jeremy Vine and local MP Ruth Cadbury. Led by the charismatic drag queen Beary Poppins, we embarked on a 10K walk, accompanied by about 200 supporters, crossing Hammersmith Bridge and ending at The Black Lion pub.

The celebration continued with drinks and burgers, featuring heartfelt speeches by Jim Marshall, Trustee of the MND Association, and entertaining performances by drag queens Luna Cortez, Crayola the Queen, Pixie Polite, and Miss Lola Lasagne. The event successfully raised over £2,500, with Zoe expressing gratitude for the support and emphasising what a fantastic event it was. Many thanks to everyone involved, especially Aubrey Crawley, for organising this fantastic and impactful event.
