1st – Who are they – The Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association is a charity that funds research work, improves care & support for people living with MND, their families & carers. Information, support, & resources are available centrally from the website www.mndassociation.org.

What they do – In addition to the central services offered by the MND Association, local branch offers funding & help accessing support from other local organisations i.e. Statutory services. Plus to offer a friendly ear & the opportunity to talk to someone who understands your situation.

2nd – Who are they – ‘ABC to read’ – is an award-winning charity helping primary school children in Berkshire to read.
They are 2023 – ‘Pride of Reading’ – Charity of the Year winners!
In a diverse area like Berkshire there are many children who have trouble reading. ABC to read was set up in 2004 to find, train & support volunteers in primary schools across Berkshire. We help hundreds of children each year to enjoy reading & gain an essential skill for life.
Imagine if you couldn’t read the labels on your food, emails from your friends or the instructions for operating a Smart phone. Without literacy skills, children can easily grow into adults who are unable to lead happy, fulfilled lives & contribute to society. Plus, as children they may have low confidence & low esteem.
The trustees include head teachers & a variety of people from the community who help giving their time & expertise.
They help to transform the lives of children who are struggling to read at primary & secondary schools across Berkshire. Their volunteer reading mentors, work one-to-one with children to build their confidence & reading skills.
