Drink Tea for MND!

Please visit my Thoughtful Treats Café Menu and help me reach my fundraising target in support of people living with Motor Neurone Disease.

By choosing a thoughtful treat – not only are you helping to fund our frontline nursing service, extra home care hours and critical equipment that's needed to keep people at home - you are also sending a powerful message of hope to every family affected by MND.

There are more than 400 people affected by this cruel and debilitating disease all across Ireland. The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) is the only organisation in this country supporting these families and it’s a charity that’s very close to my heart.

Please support my fundraising efforts and help me ensure that every person living with MND receives the dedicated care and support they need.

Hi Everyone !

Tuesday 1st Jun
We are asking our friends and family to get behind us  and help us raise funds for  IMNDA - Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association . In December 2020 our wonderful Mam was given the absolutely dreadful news that she had Motor Neurone Disease . Anyone that knows Mam will know that she was always out and about , minding the grandkids, helping us all in any way she could, basically a Superwoman, so you can imagine how utterly devastating the diagnoses was for her. It is a progressive neurological condition with no cure or no treatment that will stop it.. It affects how a patient walks, talks, eats and breathes. It is a very debilitating , horrific disease and can affect patients in different ways.At the moment there are around 420 people in Ireland living with this disease. The IMNDA are essential to these patients, their families and carers. They provide counselling, nurses, equipment and any help they can and rely mainly on donations and fundraisers to do what they do. 
So this June they are asking people to do a very simple thing ... DRINK TEA !! No big effort to most of us !! You can do a virtual tea party with your family and friends, or have an outside cuppa with your loved ones . And pay a visit to the Virtual Cafe here and make your donation , whatever you can afford, every little helps ! Fingers crossed for good weather so we can sit outside and raise a mug!  Maybe use the opportunity to have a nice relaxed afternoon of laughter and treats with your loved ones, we are all guilty of taking things for granted , a disease like MND makes you realise that. Hope you can get behind us, share with friends and family and lets raise as much as we can !! Thanks for your support xx
