Motor Neurone Disease Association

Registered Charity 294354

The Isle of Wight branch of the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association was formed in 1996 and is run entirely by volunteers, many of who have personal experience of the disease.  Our aim is to provide the best possible support to local people living with MND and their families and carers. We also focus on raising awareness of the disease and the association, and fundraising.

We hold regular monthly informal support group meetings, where people with MND and their carers have the opportunity to meet with others living with the disease, to share experiences and make new friends.

We also produce a local newsletter – available in printed format or visit the branch website www.mndiw.org.uk under recent news to download a copy.

Under normal circumstances we would be organising a number of fundraising events during the year:

  • Antiques Fair
  • Tea/Coffee Mornings
  • Race Nights
  • Quiz Nights etc.

We have also been supported by lovely people who run marathons or do sponsored cycling events to help raise funds. Sadly, none of this has happened since early 2020 so the funds are rapidly depleting as we still continue to support the people that need us when they need us. All sponsorship is greatly appreciated or if you would like to chose us as your charity of the year, we will be eternally grateful.

MND is a rapidly progressive neurodegenerative disease that can affect any one at any time, and at the moment there is no known cure. We strive for a world free of MND.
