Branch Committee Members
|Chair||Joel Millett |
In 2009 I completed my Association Visitor training. Previously I had cared for my mum, Erica who had MND. I am so proud to be part of such a dedicated, hard working and caring committee.
|Vice Chair||Margaret Bailey||My husband, Hal, lived with the disease for 15 years. I initially joined the committee as his voice but because of the support the association provides I wanted to carry on to help others.||2008|
I volunteered to join the committee in April 2008. Sadly my mum had to battle MND for 18 months and as a result I wanted to do something to help other people living with this cruel disease.
I am very happy to support the Motor Neurone Association in this role and give something back with being involved in further charitable works.

I initially got involved with MND through the work of my husband John, who is the Treasurer. I have previously worked as a social worker and a swimming teacher, and I feel as though I have a lot to give to support those who are living with MND.
|Publicity Officer||Sarah Dunn|
I am Clare Ward's sister, see above, and I work as a journalist for a regional newspaper and I wanted to raise awareness of this terrible disease.
|Newsletter Editor||Emma Edwards||I volunteered in memory of my mum who we sadly lost to this terrible disease in 2014. Managing the newsletter means I can help to promote all the wonderful campaigns, fundraising events and local news. ||firstname.lastname@example.org|
|AV Coordinator||Amy Richardson||I joined the committee in the hope of providing support to those living with MND. My role as an Association Visitor and being a committee member goes someway of achieving this, allowing me to meet those people living with the condition directly.||2009|
My father was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in March 2008. I made the decision to join the Committee to help provide support for people who have been diagnosed with this terrible, disabling disease.
Since retiring I have been involved in many different aspects of volunteering and recently decided to take on a new challenge. My decision to work with MNDA comes from personal experience of knowing someone who suffered with the disease along with a strong desire to make a positive contribution to a very worthwhile cause.
|Campaigns||Richard Webb||We have supported the work of the Association for about 10 years but in 2016 my wife Kath was diagnosed with the disease. Having seen the support available from the Association I volunteered my help and was asked to stand as campaigns contact which I was happy to do.||2017||01606 853456|

|Webmasters||Rebecca & David Jackson & Stephen Fox||Our father, Michael Fox, was diagnosed with MND in May 2016. The support both him and our mother have received from the MND association has been fantastic; editing the website allows us to give a little something back.||2017||07498294229 (Rebecca)||email@example.com|
