PGA Presentations

By Emma Bungay

In his year as Captain of the West Region Professional Golfers Association, Nick Rogers chose two charities to raise money for in 2017. He chose the Cornwall Air Ambulance and the Motor Neurone Disease Association; and set about raising large amounts of money and awareness for both.


Nick chose the Cornwall Air Ambulance as they provide a fantastic emergency service for people in need in Cornwall. He chose the MND Association because, after his mother-in-law was diagnosed with the illness in May 2013, he saw the sheer “amount of care that is needed for someone suffering with such a horrible illness”.

On 2nd February 2018, a presentation evening was held to present the charities with their cheques. Karen Christophers, Association Visitor, received the cheque on behalf of the Cornwall Branch of the MND Association. A staggering £3,135.60 was raised for each charity.


The Cornwall Branch of the MND Association would very much like to thank Nick Rogers and everyone involved in the fundraising activities for their fantastic fundraising efforts.

Our First Support Group Morning

Words by Christine Bungay

The support meeting at Trelawney garden centre at Sladesbridge, Wadebridge, on Tuesday 16th January 2018 went very well. Twelve people came and shared their stories about MND, and we had waitress service providing much needed coffee and cake.


Support Meeting January 2018


We encourage you to watch this space for the next support group morning which will be held in a different location in Cornwall, and will hopefully attract people in need of support who couldn't make the journey today.


Details of the next morning will be uploaded here in due course.
