West Dorset Motor Neurone Disease Association chairman Richard Sloan was pleased to be joined by Bridport Town Mayor Barry Irvine at last Saturday’s MNDA event in the town, marking the 40th anniversary of the Association.
Motor Neurone Disease is a life limiting illness that affects mobility, speech, swallowing and other vital functions. Currently there is no treatment or cure. The only research into the cause of this terminal disease is carried by the Association which relies on support from the public.
Volunteers of MNDA were on hand to offer information and advice about MND and to explain the support they can give to patients and their families.
A street collection raised £321 which will go towards providing care and equipment for people affected by MND in West Dorset. Members of the local Association thank the public for their generosity.
