Mike Coleman

Mike Coleman

Chair

I became involved with MNDA when my wife was diagnosed with this terrible disease. We were so well supported by both the Manchester and Cheshire branches. I was encouraged to train as an Association Visitor in 2016. It gives me great pleasure to be putting something back into the Association. I was elected Chairman of the Cheshire Branch in 2019.

Secretary

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 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.

Richard Webb

Richard Webb

Campaigns, Vice Chair

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.

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.

Sarah Walker

Sarah Walker

Publicity Officer

As a former regional newspaper journalist now working in communications for a local hospice, I want to use my skills and experience to raise awareness of the condition in the Cheshire area and to inspire local communities to support the charity through fundraising and donations. My mum lived with MND for around 18 months and this is my way of doing something positive in her memory.

Emma Edwards

Newsletter Editor

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.
