Cambridge rail station staff and passengers raise £300 for motor neurone research

Wednesday, 28 March 2018

Greater Anglia staff at Cambridge station rallied round to raise hundreds of pounds for research into motor neurone disease, to support a colleague after her mother was diagnosed with the condition.

Together they helped Ticket Office supervisor, Becky Cubitt, to raise £300 for the MND Association through a staff raffle and collecting tins at ticket office windows.

Staff even took to the platforms with collection buckets.

Becky commented: “I’ve been really touched by the support of my colleagues who have really boosted my fundraising efforts and I’m very grateful to all the passengers who donated as they came through Cambridge station. MND Association is a brilliant charity that is close to my heart and I know that every penny will be spent on finding ways to fight this devastating disease.”

The MND Association works to improve care and support for people with motor neurone disease, their families and carers.

They also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments, working towards finding a cure.

It is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on care, research and campaigning.
