Trek to fight Motor Neurone Disease
1st September 2015
Staff from Brintons donned their walking boots this bank holiday to help raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Motor neurone disease affects 5,000 people in the UK at any one time, with five people dying each week from the condition. That is why the team took on the challenge and raised over £900 for the charity, which dedicates its funds to promoting research and improving the care and support for people affected by MND.
15 people, including staff and family members, walked six and a half mile round challenge on Monday 31st August. The walk followed the Stourport Circular and the team completed the walk in just over two hours.
Sarah Draper, who coordinated the walk with Natalie Littlehales, commented: “It’s fantastic to see so many staff and family members take on this challenge to help us raise money for this worthwhile cause. It’s a charity that is close to many of our hearts and the work it does helps to improve the lives of many suffering with disease.”
