Branch Newsletter December 2013

Thirteen members of the Branch attended our Christmas lunch on 1st December 2013 in the Kings Manor Hotel Edinburgh, two of which were new members Amanda Riddell and Amy McLean who appeared to enjoy it very much.

During the lunch I was presented with a card and gift voucher by Sheila Clarke our Treasurer on behalf of the Branch members as a thank you for my help and support to the group.  This was completely unexpected but very much appreciated.  All in all, a great day was had by everyone who attended the lunch.

As stated in last month’s newsletter I will be stepping down from the post of secretary to the Edinburgh & Lothians Branch at the end of this year.  Although I will no longer be secretary, I will still be taking an active part in fund-raising and organising events within the Branch.  May I take this opportunity to thank all volunteers and members of the group for their assistance over the years.

New Secretary

Our new secretary, who has agreed to take over this voluntary position will be Laura Stephenson an MND research nurse at the Euan McDonald Centre in Edinburgh.  We wish her well and ask you to support her, as you have supported me in the past.

Thank you.
