Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association – Isle of Wight Branch


The  Isle of Wight branch of the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association is proud to announce their 14th annual ‘Mum’s Memory Day’ event will be held on Sunday 11th March 2018 at Northwood House, Ward Avenue, Cowes, Isle of Wight PO31 8AZ
This Antiques and Collectors Fair is in loving memory of Mavis Summerfield who died of MND in March 2002. Her two daughters (Doreen and Jennie) both living on the Isle of Wight, organise this annual tribute to raise much needed funds for the Isle of Wight branch to help local people living with MND.
Jennie Lewis, Chair of the IOW Branch, commented ‘We always get fantastic support at this event and visitors have such a varied array of quality goods to choose from.  We are looking forward to another fantastic day’
Doreen added ‘ Although MND is starting to receive more publicity we must never give up raising awareness and, just as important, continue to raise funds to help local people living with MND and their families on the Island.’
The Antiques Fair will be open from 10.30am-3.00pm on Sunday 11th March 2018 selling a wide variety of goods including quality furniture, books, jewellery, silver, vintage items, garden antiques, militaria, china, glass and much more.
FREE valuations will kindly be provided by well-respected local valuer Tim Smith. NB – Valuations between 11.30am and 1.00pm only.
Admission to the fair is £2.00 per adult with accompanied children under 12 free (all entrance fees are donated directly to the IOW branch of MND).
Refreshments and Light snacks will be available to purchase.
All enquiries to Jennie on 01983 643323 or via email
The Isle of Wight branch of MND is run entirely by volunteers who give their time freely. We rely on donations to help us fund local needs for people living with MND on the Isle of Wight. Recent research by the MND Association has revealed that a person with MND will need an extra £12,000 per year to help them cope with the ever-changing needs that this awful disease may throw at them. This amount doesn’t include loss of earnings so every penny we raise on 11th March is vital.
