The latest newsletter is now available. Thanks to Clare for taking over this job, and I’m sure you’ll all enjoy the ‘new look’!
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.
Will be on Sunday 8th March, from 1.00 to 4.00 at:
Church House, 20 Alan Turing Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU2 7YF.
As always, Avala Catering will be providing a tasty buffet to begin the meeting.
We will then have a short AGM, before continuing with the main meeting.
Our speaker will be John Gillies-Wilkes, MNDA Head of Region. He will talk to us on ‘The New-look MNDA in the Regions’.
Our room is on the ground floor and is fully equipped with AV facilities, and a small cafeteria next door where Nigel’s food and drink will be available. Of course, being a modern building, it’s also fully wheelchair-friendly. Plenty of parking space available.
