Nearly £1,200 was raised for the charity during an event held at Bledlow Manor on Friday 22nd June 2018.
The special event, organised by the South Bucks branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association, took place at Bledlow Manor the private estate of Lord Carrington, former Foreign Secretary. It is the second year that Lord Carrington kindly agreed to open up his gardens especially for the charity.
Almost £1,200 was raised with funds raised through ticket sales, the sale of home made cakes (and tea!) and a raffle with prizes including a luxury hamper and afternoon tea at a local garden centre.
The event was very well attended, no doubt helped by the glorious sunshine.
All money raised goes towards supporting people and their carers, who are living with Motor Neurone Disease in South Buckinghamshire. As an example, the South Bucks branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association runs monthly events called ‘Care and Cared for’ where people living with the disease, and their carers, can meet up and chat to others going through the same experience over a cup of tea and cake.
The event at Bledlow Manor and the South Bucks branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association is entirely run by volunteers.
The charity is running two other events this summer, a walk of the Pednor Loop in Chesham on Sunday 1st July 2018 and a screening of ‘The Theory of Everything’ at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield on Saturday 7th July 2018.
