Silence Speaks for Motor Neurone Disease

Today, Victoria McFadyen falls silent from 7 am  – 4pm at the Butchers counter at Booths Barrowford in support of Motor Neurone Disease.

Victoria has joined in with the MND national campaign of ‘Silence Speaks’ which is raising awareness of the struggles people face when diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease – one of the first things they lose is the ability to speak.  On Fri 26th October 2018, she will be doing her full shift at the Butchers counter in Booths in Barrowford without speaking.

Funds raised will be donated to our local charity – Lancashire and South Cumbria Motor Neurone Disease Care & Research Centre. The MND Care & Research Centre has provided valuable care for Victoria’s grandparent after being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and provided much needed support for the family.
