Christmas 2019 Meeting

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!

The next Open Branch meeting

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.
