Blister sisters walking for Motor Neurone Disease Association

Newbury accountants walking for MNDA
Posted 2022 by Jane L

We’re rooting for Loretta from our Newbury office, and Jenny a valued ex-colleague, who will be walking 20 km along the Kennet and Avon Canal on 22nd May to fundraise for the local MNDA support group, for their inspirational friend, Colin. He has had MND for several years and with the help of this local support group, nurses and his team of carers from the local and independent Care Partners, he is trying his best to continue to live a fulfilling life and we would like to ensure that everyone that needs it, gets the same care and support Colin has received.

We may have further updates on new members of the team and their training.

How to donate

Jenny and Loretta are aiming to raise £200. They have already received £90 in donations, and if you would like to help them on their way, please donate here:

We wish them all the best.

What’s MND?

With MND, messages from the motor neurones gradually stop reaching the muscles. This leads the muscles to weaken, stiffen and waste. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. Some people also experience changes to their thinking and behaviour. However, MND affects everyone differently. Not all symptoms will affect everyone, or in the same order. Symptoms also progress at varying speeds, which makes the course of the disease difficult to predict.

MND is life-shortening and there is no cure. Although the disease will progress, symptoms can be managed to help achieve the best possible quality of life and that is what the charity aims to do.

About MNDA

The MND Association focus on improving access to care, research and campaigning for those people living with or affected by MND in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

By sponsoring us your money will help people affected by Motor Neurone Disease. Once you donate, JustGiving will send your money directly to the MND Association.
