MNDA West Sussex South Branch News
Unfortunately, I shall be standing down as branch chair at the next AGM in April. We are looking for someone with a passion to help people living with MND to take on this rewarding role and also a Fundraiser to coordinate all the fundraising events that take place in our lively and dedicated branch. Please contact me for job descriptions and other information if you feel that you could be that person! I look forward to hearing from you.
We were very privileged to have Sally Light, Chief Executive of MNDA as our guest for the day on Monday, 24th April. Sally visited several people living with MND and, at a special lunch, awarded an Extra Mile Award to Sandra Holden, one of our MND nurses.
In the evening she attended our AGM and, as well as giving an interesting and inspiring speech, she presented awards to 5 people who had been branch members for 30 years and were all still active in the branch! These were Frances Ramsden, Kitty Mounstephen, Margaret Tester, Helen and Robert Clifford-Jones.
The Christmas branch meeting on 28th November was enhanced by the Melodians Choir, who sang a wonderful selection of Christmas melodies and a delicious buffet with wine and soft drinks. There was also a special raffle, the sale of Christmas cards and two draws for the Thumbs Up Club. A great evening was had by all!
Our autumn quiz has raised £602.00 !
In spite of the fact that it was Bonfire night, 75 people attended the quiz and enjoyed the evening, especially the fish and chips and fantastic raffle! Our new Quizmasters, Lin and Matt, created a very challenging set of questions, which had teams scratching their heads and led to a great deal of discussion.
A Big Thankyou to everyone
