Get Involved

Fundraising

Fundraising is a fantastic way to show your support to those living with MND and helps to spread the message to friends, family and those further afield.

There are countless ways in which you can help to raise money for the MNDA.

Many national fundraising events are organised year round for you to get involved in and there is something for everyone regardless of age or fitness.

An MNDA-specific national event is the ‘Walk to D’Feet MND’. These walks are a fantastic way to raise money and can either be organised by yourself or you can join in with other planned walks. The walks can take place whenever and wherever you like and can be as long or short as you wish meaning they can be targeted to the abilities of the group taking part. If you would like more information or to receive a fundraising pack please see the MND Association Website.

Other national events are also available for you to get involved with and show your support. You can swim, run, cycle, walk, skydive or just get messy, all in the aim of raising money and awareness. See the MNDA Website for more information on challenges you can get involved in.

Campaigning

We campaign and raise awareness so the needs of people with MND and everyone who cares for them are recognised and addressed by wider society. Campaign with us to help create positive change to the lives of people living with MND and their carers. Join the online MND Campaign Network and join us on Facebook and Twitter to follow our campaigns.

Volunteering

Volunteers play a very important role in the Association by providing invaluable support to the individuals and families living with MND. We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals to get involved with our work. Every little helps and involvement ranging from a place on our committee to just a couple of hours of your time at fundraisers all makes a difference. If you are interested in getting involved with our branch please contact our Secretary Sharon Isaacs.
