The latest newsletter is now available. Thanks to Clare for another attractive issue!
The format and venue of these are under review at the moment. If your family is affected by MND, do let us know how you’d like to see them develop!
An enjoyable time was had by all at our Christmas meeting on Sunday!
Kevin’s talk ‘Keta’s Journey’ was totally inspiring, and the food and drink went down well – as ever, many thanks to Avala Catering!
Kevin had with him some books of children’s poetry, written by Gill Doherty, a lady with MND who sadly passed away about a year ago. The poems are charming, and any small child could relate to them. They are beautifully illustrated by her daughter Gemma, and are just the thing for a Christmas stocking if you move quickly!
Proceeds from the sales of the book will be shared by the MND Association and Woking Hospice, both of whom cared for Gill in her final months.
To get yours, just contact any West Surrey Branch committee member, or put a note on the ‘Contact’ page. The suggested donation is £5 a copy, but it would be churlish to turn down more if that’s what you wanted to give!
We are delighted to welcome Charlotte Hawkins as our new Branch Patron!
Charlotte will be joining us at our Summer meeting on Saturday 8th June, so do come along to meet her, and hear about her family connection with MND and her life in the public eye.
More details will appear in the Summer Newsletter.
DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, INCLUDING SOME CASES IN OUR AREA, WE HAVE RELUCTANTLY DECIDED TO CANCEL THE MEETING AND AGM THIS SUNDAY 8th MARCH.
Please pass this on to anyone you know who was thinking about coming along.
We’ll do the AGM as part of the next meeting (provisionally Sunday 14th June), and look forward to seeing you then.
