‘Dis­ease can strike any­one at any­time’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - COUNTRYFILE -

AMANDA was so moved by Steve’s plight that she vowed to do ev­ery­thing in her power to raise aware­ness of the dis­ease. De­spite her fear of heights, Amanda will be do­ing a para­chute jump at Head­corn Aero­drome on Satur­day, April 7, from a min­i­mum of 10,000ft. She said: “There is no gov­ern­ment fund­ing for mo­tor neu­rone dis­ease, yet it can af­fect any­body at any time.” More than £1,000 has al­ready been raised in spon­sor­ship and more is flood­ing in. Phoenix School in By­brook is spon­sor­ing Amanda through some of the pro­ceeds it raised from Red Nose Day.
