There are many ways to help those affected by MND and just two of the many are through fundraising and donating.
Either by getting involved yourself by organising your own fundraisers or joining in with events going on in the local area or simply by donating to an MND fund.
The MND Association organises many events throughout the year, which you, your family and friends can become involved in. They are organised internationally, nationally and more locally to raise much needed awareness of MND and funds to support those affected by this disease.
To find out more about events taking place organised by the MND Association go to: www.mndassociation.org/get-involved/fundraising
Events are also organised by the MND local support branches and by local people affected by MND.
You can donate to the Middlesbrough MND care centre by sending a cheque, postal order or charity cheque made payable to South Tees Hospitals Charity, MND Fund H114 to:
MND Care Centre
The James Cook University Hospital
Or you can make a donation in person at the charitable funds centre at James Cook Hospital or the cashiers office at the Friarage Hospital. For other ways to donate to the Middlesbrough MND care centre please contact the MND Advanced Nurse Specialist on 01642 854318 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All donations made to the Middlesbrough MND Care Centre are used directly to improve the quality of life of those living with or affected by MND in the Durham, Tees and North Yorkshire area.
With previous donations, we have been able to develop innovative and award winning services such as the Butterwick MND First Contact Group and clinical hypnotherapy in association with St Teresa’s hospice.
We have also been able to purchase respiratory monitoring equipment and respiratory devices for people living with MND to help improve and support breathing.
Donations have also been used to develop family and carer groups and with future donations we hope to develop services to support children and young families as well as offering more complementary and practical support services for people living with and supporting those with MND.
