Cheque is pre­sented to char­ity

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A CHEQUE for €1,700 was pre­sented to Katie Kin­sella of the Irish Mo­tor Neu­ron Dis­ease As­so­ci­a­tion in Clay­ton Whites Ho­tel.

The money was raised through a cof­fee morn­ing held in Whit­ford House Ho­tel, or­gan­ised by Cllr Lisa McDon­ald and Vanessa Davey, whose part­ner’s brother is suf­fer­ing from the ill­ness.

The Irish Mo­tor Neu­rone Dis­ease As­so­ci­a­tion is the only or­gan­i­sa­tion of its kind in the coun­try. It was set up in 1985 to pro­vide care and sup­port to peo­ple with Mo­tor Neu­ron Dis­ease, their car­ers, fam­i­lies and friends. There are cur­rently more than 370 peo­ple liv­ing with MND in Ire­land; 11 of those are in Wex­ford.

The aim of the event, Vanessa said, was not just to raise funds but also raise aware­ness of the con­di­tion.
