Motor Neurone Disease Fundraising Appeal

Bit of a change in subject for today’s post but I wanted to plug the awesome fundraising effort my dad is doing next week in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

He lost a close friend to this terrible illness almost a year to the day and ever since has been growing his hair and beard in order to do a fundraising shave, that takes place next week, 21st December at 2pm at Rackhams Building Supplies, Harleston, IP20 9AB.

If local, please pop along to give your support and all donations are welcome on his Just Giving page which can be found here:

He’s looked like an unkempt mess for the best part of a year in order to raise a few pounds to help support people with this horrific disease so anything you can give would be very much appreciated.
