Framptons hand cheque for £20,000 to MNDA

July 2012

On 16th June 2012 Fundraiser on the Farm took place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) in memory of Clive Frampton, chairman of Framptons Limited. Clive passed away in March this year after a brave and dignified fight against motor neurone disease.

This week the cheque for the final amount raised - £20,000 – was handed over to the MNDA at Worthy Farm by event organisers CarolineBurgess, and Emma Frampton, Clive’s daughter, alongside Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis.

The money was raised through ticket sales for the event (which featured live music), an auction and raffle on the night, takings from the bar and general donations.

Caroline Burgess, Marketing Co-ordinator at Framptons Limited, said: “We are so proud of the amount of money that has been raised for the MNDA. This would not have been possible without the support of Framptons Limited, who invested a significant sum of money in the event to ensure that all the money we received from ticket sales, and the auction and raffle, went straight to the charity. The event also wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Michael Eavis and his team, so we are truly grateful.

“We’d also like to thank all our volunteers who helped on the night, in particular Barclays Bank employee Zena Pollard, who was able to raise £750 towards the total through the company’s matched-giving scheme.

“We hope the money raised can help find a cure for motor neurone disease.”

Several local companies also supported the event by donating prizes and stock for the bar, buying tickets and bidding on auction lots.

Sarah Hampton, Regional Fundraiser, Motor Neurone Disease Association, said “It was a marvellous event and a great night.  Caroline and Emma and their volunteers did a great job and raised a fantastic amount of money.  A massive thank you from everyone at the Association.

“£20,000 could fund more than 130 days research into the prevention and cure of motor neurone disease, or could provide direct support for seven people with MND.”

Five people a day die in the UK from MND. It is a rapidly progressive, fatal disease that can affect any adult at any time. The disease leaves people unable to walk, talk or feed themselves. The cause of MND is
unknown and there is no cure.

The MND Association is the only national charity for MND in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and relies on voluntary donations. It dedicates a higher proportion of its income to MND-specific research than any other organisation.

It provides an information and support service, financial grants and equipment loan service for people affected by the disease.
