On June 16 the local branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association had a collection in the town and through the generosity of the Horsham shoppers raised £1,020.03 .It is such an amazing amount especially as the recession is so much in evidence.
All the money will be used to support local people living with this cruel disease for which there is no cure.There is no means testing of our members so any of our members can receive such help as needed in a speedy manner as the progression of the disease can be very fast and unrelenting.
A huge thankyou goes to all the volunteers who gave their time to collect in the inclement weather and to all those people who put so much money in the collection boxes.
