Here at the Bristol & Bath Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) we are gearing up for a summer of events to raise awareness of MND. Below, we bring you news of forthcoming festivals, sponsored walks and many more days of fun. We hope that you will be able to support one or all of these days out, and help us spread the word to your friends and families.
Thank you for your continued support.
Summer Festival, Saturday 20 June 2015, 11 am – 3 pm,
Eden Grove Church, Filton, Bristol
Last year’s summer festival brought the community together, raised awareness of motor neurone disease (MND) and was a beautiful hot sunny day! So, of course, we’re very excited to be doing it all over again…and hope that the weather is kind once again!
Join us for a celebratory day of music, good food and most importantly – fun!
Music from the Croft End Silver Band and the Welsh Wizard organist; Displays of vintage cars, re-enactments and model railway; North Bristol Radio Club; Stalls: plants, cakes, fruit & veg, gifts; Raffle, bottles, tombola
***New this year – a special enclosed children’s area with 6 side shows – only £1 for six goes! Badge making and children’s gift stall too!***
***Admission is FREE!***
MND Charity Fun Day, Saturday 20 June, 2 – 6 pm
The Grove Sports Centre, Nailsea,
Once you’ve sampled the delights of our festival in Filton, why not head over to Nailsea where another Fun Day has been organised as part of MND Awareness month.
There’ll be a raffle and silent auction with some fantastic prizes as well as many stalls and activities for the kids. Lots of fun to be had by all!

Sunday 28 June – The Fourth Annual Nailsea Charity Walks & Runs
Fancy a sponsored 5 km stroll or more serious (10 or 20 km) run for the MNDA? The Rotary Club of Nailsea and Backwell are giving you the opportunity to raise funds for the MNDA through taking part in an organised walk or run around Nailsea and surrounding area.
Now firmly established as an important part of the Nailsea calendar, the event will see folks get together to have fun, enjoy the local countryside with friends and family and raise money for deserving local organisations at the same time.
