Motor Neurone Disease Association-North Wiltshire Group provides a much loved and valued service for the community.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a rapidly progressive fatal disease with no known cure which affects around 5,000 people in the country at any one time. Life expectancy is up to just five years and around half die within 14 months of diagnosis.
Since 1988 our group has provided emotional and financial support to all those affected by MND in Swindon. We signpost to advice and services and help to increase awareness of this incurable disease, for more information see www.mndnorthwiltshire.org.uk.
The group provide qualified volunteer visitors who call on a regular basis and give support (both practical and emotional) to people living with MND and their families in Swindon, and act as an advocate for the family.
The group fund home adaptations, provide specialist equipment (including adaptations to wheelchairs), speech and feeding aids, as well as providing some time away to give a family a break. All the help we provide is designed to allow people with MND to live in their own homes and with dignity.
By choosing to support our group you could help in so many ways, for example –
• £50 buys an adapted cutlery set to help someone with MND continue to feed themselves
• £300 provides a basic level of respite care for one day
• £550 funds a tablet device with communication software, giving someone with MND the ability to communicate with loved ones.
We also regularly run support group meetings in Lawn Community Centre. People living with MND, along with their friends and family, are always welcome. The meetings are friendly and informal where people can meet others, make friends and catch up for a chat with a cup of tea and a slice of home-made cake.
Thank you for your support and good luck!
