Sunday 19 April 2020: AGM and Open Meeting at St Andrew's Eaton Church Hall, Church Lane, Norwich, NR4 6NW. We are considering a new venue for 2021, please let us know if you have any suggestions.

 

We are pleased to announce that Helen Pye, from the Environmental Control Service for Norfolk based at the Colman Centre, has agreed to be our guest speaker. She will give a short presentation (30 minutes or less) on environmental controls. Examples include controls to operate equipment such as intercom/door release, telephone, lamp or television - and so much more; it promises to be an interesting talk.

David Banks is raising money for the MND Association

David Banks has created some fascinating booklets about a golden era on the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads. A series of four booklets called 'memories' feature stories, both fact and fiction, about Norfolk and Suffolk. The first is now available for purchase for £6 with £2 from every copy sold coming to the Branch. More details can be found here  The page gives an email address and link to his JustGiving page where you can purchase the booklets.

 

Charity Golden Bond places for the Great North Run on 13 September 2020

....are now available. The Great North Run is the Association's second biggest annual fundraiser. There are 10 places on offer to Branches and Groups which will be filled on a first come first served basis.

 

The supporter needs to register with Stephanie Stewart rather than do this online – this is to make sure the Branch is invoiced. Stephanie is the Senior Events Fundraiser at the MND Association, 10-15 Notre Dame Mews, Northampton, NN1 2BG and can be contacted by telephone on 01604 611761 or by email at stephanie.steward@mndassociation.org  The cost to the supporter is £20 registration fee (rising to £35 after the early bird discount ends on 1 January). In addition the Branch is invoiced for the cost of the place at £55, thus the sponsorship needs to cover the costs and hopefully raise a significant additional sum to come directly to the Branch. If you are interested it is important to register quickly – the ten places will not last long!

 

In addition it would be very helpful if you could contact us so we know who is applying before we receive the invoice! Many thanks.
