George Banco Ltd Supporting the Motor Neurone Disease Association

MNDA LogoThis Friday evening the George Banco team will be attending a fundraising event in the historic city of Bath to support the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

A close friend of the business and event organiser, Emma Frampton invited George Banco to attend in order to help raise money to research this fatal disease so that it may one day be controlled or even eradicated.

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a rapidly progressive, fatal disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This in turn gradually stops the signals sent from the brain from reaching the muscles causing weakness and wastage.

This disease can affect how a person walks, talks, eats, drinks or breathes but not all symptoms present in the same way every time. It affects different people in varying degrees, from the progression of the symptoms to the length of survival time after being diagnosed.

Emma’s father was a sufferer of this little known disease and tragically‚Ćlost his battle with MND in 2012, which has driven Emma to do as much as possible to raise awareness and funds for the MNDA.

Emma commented,

“After losing my father to this debilitating illness, supporting the Motor Neurone Disease Association has become a huge passion of mine. It is the only charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland that concentrates on MND care, research and campaigning. We are still very unsure of the causes of Motor Neurone Disease, which is why it’s so important to raise these much needed funds for research. This in turn will help us to find comprehensive treatment, improved care, and ultimately a cure.”

George also commented,

“It was so sad when we heard about the tragic loss of Emma’s father. It was an easy decision for George Banco to support the MNDA. We are delighted to be attending and will do all we can to help make this a hugely successful evening”

The event will be taking place in Bath on Friday 29th May.
