Community rallies for MND support
A group of 50 members from the wider Narrogin community came together to raise $2600 in effort to support those affected by motor neurone disease.
A morning tea was held at the Dryandra Country Visitor Centre last Thursday, while a quilt made by Helen McMullan was auctioned off via a raffle.
Raffle tickets and donations were sold and raised to reach the impressive sum that will be donated to the MND Association of WA.
Event organiser Coral Mahony, said the disease doesn’t discriminate between young and old or men and women.
“This deliberating disease currently has no known cause, treatment or cure,” she said.
“The terminal progressive disease robs a person of their ability to move, eat, speak and eventually breathe.
“Each day two Australians are diagnosed with motor neurone disease and two more people pass away from the disease.”
MND Association of WA’s events manager Sarah Wiley was also in attendance.
