Chris & Gill are pleased to confirm their Captains’ Charity for 2023-2024 is the 

Motor Neurone Disease Association

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a rapidly progressive terminal condition which kills, on average, six people every day in the UK. It can leave people unable to walk, talk or even feed themselves, whilst their mind and senses invariably remain unaffected.

Average life expectancy from diagnosis is just fourteen months and, as yet, there is no cure or effective treatment.

At any one time, there are around 5,000 people in the UK living with MND.

The East Surrey Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) provides care and support to around 60 people living with MND and their families, as well as helping to fund vital research into the disease itself.

To find out more about Motor Neurone Disease and the work of the MND Association, together with how you can support your local Branch, please visit or contact Simon Edmands on 07753 821964 or

You can also follow the MND Association on Twitter at @mndassoc and on Facebook at ‘MND Association’.

Thank you for your invaluable support!
