While caring for a loved one with MND can be very rewarding, it also involves many stressors. It can be difficult for carers to find time for themselves and since caregiving can be an ongoing challenge, the emotional impact can snowball over time. And so, it’s important to remember that carers also need to take time out to care for themselves so they can continue to provide the best care for others.

Thank you to Liz Stephens along with her family and friends who organised the Calwell Winter Indoor Fair in Canberra in support of MND. The fair was a great success with a variety of stall holders and performers creating a wonderful atmosphere. Another fair is planned for 2020. Thank you to everyone who supported this event.

Our congratulations to Joy London who organised a High Tea at Ashdon B&B event which raised a fantastic $14,641 for MND research. The High Tea was held in the small community of Arakoon in NSW. It was a great day with 300 people in attendence, and a wonderful community spirit. Thank you to everyone who attended and provided their support.

We would like to thank the wonderful community at the Nareen Terrace retirement village who recently held a morning tea which raised $486. Thank you also to MND NSW Ambassador, Don McMurray, who attended the event and spoke about MND and his experiences as a carer. Thank you to everyone who contributed and supported this lovely event. 

A big thank you to Faye Wheeler who again organised a Dubbo Ladies Shopping Trip which raised $1,200 for MND NSW. Faye said of the event, "Another fabulous weekend with a great group of girls. Lots of fun, laughter, fundraising and of course shopping." Thank you ladies for your wonderful support!
