The founding members of a leading charity are travelling back to Nottinghamshire this month to mark the formation of their organisation.
Thirty years ago, the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association was created by people aiming to stop the sense of "isolation, frustration and helplessness" which many of them found in their lives when living with the neurodegenerative condition.
Prior to the formation of the MND Association in Farnsfield, scientists had very little information about the disease and since then, research has improved dramatically - something the charity is proud of.
It continued: "The Association remains true to its original mission of providing care and support to people affected by MND and research into a cure. It started off fighting and until that cure is found it will carry on the fight for people with MND."
Last week, it was revealed that actor Joss Ackland has released his wife's diaries to help people deal with the condition, with his late partner explaining the very disease she faced.
