2008 has been a great year for support for MND research at the University of Edinburgh. Two examples of fundraising events include Ellice Miller’s birthday gift. For her 80th birthday, Ellice decided to request donations to the Euan MacDonald Centre in lieu of gifts. She not only raised £1,600 but also inspired her granddaughter Waverley and her friend Robyn Gillies to raise £850 by throwing a 13th birthday party.
Also, Lady Mathewson has raised over £14,000 for the Centre. This impressive amount was raised from a fashion show that Lady Mathewson organised.
