Derek Twigg Supports Motor Neurone Disease Awareness Month

24 Jun 2015

Derek Twigg MP was pleased to attend a reception hosted by the Motor Neurone Disease Association last week to mark MND Awareness Month. Where he met people affected by MND and heard about the impact of this devastating disease.

More than 130 volunteers from across England, Wales and Northern Ireland attended the event in Westminster.

Earlier the same day the Chief Executive of the MND Association Sally Light and Association Patron and ITV Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins were joined by people affected by MND to hand in a petition to Downing Street.  The MND Charter, signed by more than 33,500, calls for the right care, in the right place at the right time for people with MND and their carers.
