We recently had the opportunity to have a stand at an event for medical students at Exeter University, to promote motor neuron disease, by informing students and welcoming any that may want to volunteer or support the local Branch.

This is the second year that the University have given us this opportunity (which is quite a privilege as ours was the only Health Charity stand present), and the previous year realised the valuable support of Peter Henley, one of the students and our branch volunteer.

The University was extremely supportive and hospitable, enabling us to partake of the lunchtime refreshments. We thank all those involved who enabled us to promote motor neurone disease and thus raise awareness.

If you or anyone you know would like to become a volunteer at our branch and help us with planning and running events, producing a newsletter or becoming an Association Visitor, please contact us.
