Viscount Ashbrook, the Patron of the Cheshire branch of the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association hosted a fundraising reception for the charity at Arley Hall.
More than 100 people attended the reception and donated more than 7,500. Special guests included the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire, David Briggs, along with Dr Brian Dickie, Director of Research Development at the MND Association and Amy Phillipson, Association Visitor and Committee member of the Cheshire branch, who gave talks on the research taking place and how this terrible disease affects people.
Guests were also entertained by a musical quartet and singers from The Hammond School in Chester. MND is a complex neurological condition and sufferers become progressively less able to do everyday things while their mind and senses remain intact. Generally the life span of a person living with MND is on average two years from diagnosis.
