'Second Thursday'

We have launched this film for MNDA Awareness Month to help highlight the importance of social contact and mutual support for individuals who are affected by MND. The MNDA Nottinghamshire branch run a social event every 'Second Thursday' at The Mapperley Plains Social Club. Everyone is very welcome.

‘Silence Speaks’

‘Silence Speaks’ Logo

Imagine an hour.... a day.... a week without speech. Why not take on the challenge and sign up for this years ‘Silence Speaks’ fundraising event.

Silence Speaks is more than just a sponsored silence, its about finding other ways to communicate. Whether you are taking on the challenge on your own, getting your workplace involved or taking part with friends and family, we have all the tools and information you need to help you – or you can visit the volunteer zone on the MND Association website where you can download lots of hints and tips to help complete your challenge.

Supporting Silence speaks will make a huge difference to people living with MND. We know that more than 80% of people living with MND experience communication difficulties, and for many this can be the hardest part of the disease. So, why not sign up today and ‘lose your voice to help others be heard’.

We also have a NEW teacher and youth leader pack for 2016 with lots of ideas and useful resources to engage young people in the event which we would be happy to send to any schools, colleges, universities or youth groups you may have contact with.

To take part simply visit www.mndassociation.org/silencespeaks or contact your Regional Fundraiser Sharon King - Sharon.king@mndassociation.org to find out more and get started.

Share the silence........
