Fundraising: Personal tribute funds raise £200,000 for MND group

The MND Association has raised more than £200,000 in just over a year through its personal tribute fund programme.

More than 100 MND personal tribute funds have been established since the motor neurone disease charity launched the programme last March.

Personal tribute funds allow friends and family of someone who has died after contracting motor neurone disease to set up dedicated funds in honour of their memory, thus raising money for research into treatment.

The association said the scheme's popularity was boosted by the launch of an internet service allowing people to set up personal tribute websites and collect donations online.

"Personal tribute funds appeal because they offer a personal and positive way to honour a loved one's memory," said Stephen May, legacy marketing fundraiser at the MND Association.
