Fun and Fundraising 2017

One of the most incredible things about MRN is how willing and determined everyone is to help and support others. This year we’ve been fundraising for some amazing charities that are close to our hearts and we’ve worked together to raise money to support their work.

Home-Start Central Bedfordshire provides vital support to local families with young children who are struggling to cope for many reasons, including illness or disability, mental ill health, bereavement, poverty or financial issues. Since 1984 they have supported more than 2000 families and 4500 children in the local community.

Along with all the funds raised and the MRN match pledge we donated a total of £6000 to Home-Start Central Bedfordshire.

The Ann Conroy Trust was established in 1980 by Ann Conroy, a Syringomyelia victim, to help others with the condition as well as provide support for their carers. Raising funds to enable research into the condition of Syringomyelia and its associated disorders was very important to Ann. The charity is completely run by volunteers, including Consultant Neurosurgeons, Specialist Nurses and Patients living with the conditions.

Along with all the funds raised and the MRN match pledge we donated a total of £1000 to The Ann Conroy Trust.

Ataxia UK have been supporting people affected by ataxia for 50 years. Their vision is a world without ataxia. Although a small charity, Ataxia UK has committed more than £4m to ataxia research over the last 10 years. As well as supporting people with ataxia, the money that is raised goes straight into funding world-class research into treatments and a possible cure. Every day their researchers are working on projects that lead closer to the prospect of a cure for ataxia.

Along with all the funds raised and the MRN match pledge we donated a total of £4000 to Ataxia UK.

MacMillan know that a cancer diagnosis can affect everything, so they are here to support and help take back some of the control. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk, they’re here.

Along with all the funds raised and the MRN match pledge we donated a total of £3000 to MacMillan.

From Christmas craft sales, marathon running, a pancake flip off, bake sales and so much more, the support and care that the team have taken to raise this money has been incredible.

We donated an incredible £14,000 to our UK charities this year and we are so grateful for all of the support, donations and hard work that everyone at MRN has put into this.
