I always knew that I wanted to volunteer for the MND Association, I didn’t expect to find myself as Chair just yet! However when Maureen invited me to take over from her, I thought, ‘a big act to follow, but why not give it a go!’
My lovely husband John was diagnosed with MND in 2018 and as you can imagine it was devastating news. The wonderful people who volunteer and work for the Association were so very supportive to John & I through the most difficult time of our lives. That is something you never forget.
We both enjoyed working with our friends within MNDA & the fundraising just snowballed and many memories were made. When John sadly passed in 2020 I knew that I wanted to be part of the ‘team’ that supported him.
So here I am! Looking forward to getting to grips with the role & I just know that I will once again get 100% support from the MND Association and in particular the West Sussex South Branch.
