Nick's fundraising for MND

"Keep a fire burning in your eye
Pay attention to the open sky
You never know what will be coming down...."
by Jackson Browne

Following a diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in June 2023, I'm planning to 'Do More In '24' - travel with Jill, spend time with the boys, Jane, family and friends.

To raise awareness of MND and funds for three invaluable MND charities, we are taking on a 444 mile cycle from Suffolk to Sennen in Cornwall.

The three charities we are fundraising for provide advocacy, support and hope for the MND community and their families.

• MND Association - to assist their work supporting and caring for MMD sufferers, as well as invaluable research and future treatments
• ChallengingMND - who offer MND sufferers the opportunity to create amazing memories with their family and friends which will last forever.
• My Name’5 Doddie Foundation - The Doddie Weir foundation is committed to helping improve the lives of individuals and families affected by MND, funding research to find a cure. To give a life full of Love, Fun & Hope.

If you would like to support me, Jill and family to enable us to live out the best and fullest life possible, which, in time, will require specialist equipment and alterations to our home, then please go to - https://www.gofundme.com/f/for-Nick-and-family-living-with-MND

Your ongoing support is hugely appreciated, thank you.

Carpe diem!
