A message from Hetty Smith


new member of the South Herts branch, Alice Eveleigh is undertaking a sky dive in memory of her father who she lost to MND two years ago.  To mark his birthday she is doing this on Friday 20th August.

All proceeds will be split between the South Herts branch and the Somerset branch - where her father lived.
Please see Alice's appeal on Just Giving by clicking on the link below.

She is so close to her target - both branches would be hugely grateful if you could help her reach it.

Thanks and regards

For those who have been on our mailing list for some time, you will know that at the end of each year we send out a Christmas Appeal for funds. This year, however, we have changed the name of this appeal and are calling it a Winter Appeal due to the extraordinary times we are living in at present. By doing this, we will be extending the appeal through the entire winter in the hope of raising more funds than usual. This, unfortunately, is necessary as all our face to face fundraising has had to stop since April and we do not know when this will start again. The South Herts Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association is completely self funding and, as you know, we try to support everyone who needs our help both financially and practically. Fundraising is becoming more and more difficult as the Covid pandemic continues. We hope you will be able to help us through this difficult time with a financial donation. The smallest contribution would be so very much appreciated.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas & New Year and hope you can enjoy this with your family and friends as best you can during these difficult times.

If you would like to donate to the branch you can do so in the following ways:-

* Send cheque payable to MNDA South Herts Branch to:

Hetty Smith, 7 Farthing Drive, Letchworth Garden City, Herts., SG6 2TR

* If you would like to pay by bank transfer, please contact Hetty by email at:


* Or you can donate online on our website which is


and then go to the ‘donate to the branch’ section

If you have not donated to us before and completed a Gift Aid form, we urge you to complete and return the form (you can get it by clicking on the icon below) to us to claim an additional 25p for every £1 donated from HM Revenue and Customs.

A message about events

We continue to follow Government and National Office guidelines during the pandemic. All contact with people living with MND, their carers and families is by telephone and via virtual meetings.

This includes our monthly Get Togethers, further details can be found by clicking on the upcoming events link below.

We very much hope to be able to see you all face to face sometime next year - hopefully in the Spring.  For now the priority has to be the safety of people living with MND in our area, their families and carers as well as our branch members and supporters.
