Northampton Garden Centre thanked by MND Charity

A charity supporting people suffering from motor neurone disease has thanked Northampton garden centre cafe staff for their support over the last year.

Sally Light, CEO of the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, presented a certificate of thanks to Northampton Garden Centre restaurant staff for their support of the charity?s drop-in events, held at the restaurant since last March.

The county branch organises a lunch for people with MND, and their carers, on the first Wednesday of every month. This provides an informal, social opportunity for people to meet for mutual support and sharing of experiences.

Christine Hull, committee member of the Northamptonshire branch of the MND Association, said: ?There is no doubt this venture has been a resounding success with benefits for people with MND and their carers.

?An unexpected bonus has been the positive feedback from others who attend such as committee members, former carers and association visitors.

?Thanks go to the restaurant staff who have made us very welcome and have always willingly accommodated our needs.?

MND is a rapidly progressive and fatal disease, which can affect any adult at any time. It attacks the motor neurones that send messages from the brain to the muscles, leaving people unable to walk, talk or feed themselves.
