The South Lancs Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association has the sole aim of serving all those in the area who are affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This includes people with MND, their carers, family and friends, in fact anyone who has been touched in some way by the disease.
Our branch holds regular support meetings for people living with MND and their carers. We meet every 3rd Wednesday of the month at Blackbrook Rugby and Recreational Club, 64 Boardmans Lane, St. Helens, WA11 9BB at 7:30pm. These meetings provide an opportunity to meet with other people living with the MND, and to share experiences and ideas. Everyone is welcome to come along and meet for a chat and a “cuppa”.
Fundraising and raising awareness are also an important part of branch activities. We organise a number of events throughout the year which are well supported. Additionally we are very fortunate to be assisted by a number of individuals and organisations within the region. These individuals raise money for use by the branch to help people living with MND or to help fund research into MND to learn more about the disease and help to find treatments. Every event helps spread the word about MND and raise people's understanding of what it means to live with MND.
The South Lancs Branch is run entirely by volunteers, many of who have personal experience of the disease. We are always interested in hearing from people who can help with events or who want to get involved with running the branch.
