Greater Anglia Helps Promote the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association

Friday, 21 June 2013

Greater Anglia is helping to promote the work of the MND Association.

The train operator is supporting the MND Association by donating poster space to the charity at 100 stations across East Anglia, throughout June.
 
Greater Anglia has been working to support the MND Association, since making a donation to the charity earlier in the year, following their employee survey. Providing poster space at Greater Anglia stations is another way in which the train operator has sought to help the charity. 

Jason Brandon Greater Anglia’s Marketing Manager said: “We hope giving the MND Association poster space at 100 of our stations around the eastern region will assist the charity in raising awareness of the disease. The MND Association does important work and we are pleased to be able to help them.”

The MND Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland that funds and promotes global research into the disease and provides support for people affected by MND. The MND Association has over 3,000 active volunteers, some of which are Colchester based, all of whom are dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by MND, now and in the future.

Karen Brown of the Colchester Branch of the MND Association said: “MND is a rapidly progressive neurological condition and around half of those diagnosed die within 14 months. We are extremely grateful to Greater Anglia for their assistance in helping us to raise awareness of the disease.”
