Bishop's Lent Appeal 2018

Posted 5th February, 2018

This year’s Appeal will be for MND Scotland in memory of our late Diocesan Secretary, Chris Zochowski, who died from Motor Neurone Disease (MND) earlier this year. The Appeal will be launched at this year’s Synod at Kilmarnock on 3rd March.

In 1981, MND Scotland was founded by John Macleod, a 32 year old Strathclyde police officer, who had MND. Together with his wife, Peigi, their family and friends, they started the charity to help those with MND in Scotland. At the time John was diagnosed, services were limited and health professionals had little or no knowledge of the condition. John’s aim was to help change this and the Scottish Motor Neurone Disease Association was born.

You can visit the MND Scotland website for further information.
