2019 Supported Charities
Following the sad death of long term MOTer Monty Giles from this disease and in response to members requests we have decided to support the Alzheimers society this year. Dementia is now the leading cause of death in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and a huge challenge for the health and social care system. There are 850,000 people living with dementia and nearly every MMOC member will know someone affected by dementia, and the cruel tragic loss of personality and well-being it brings to that individual and the sad impact on family life and relationships.
Money raised on MOT will go directly to the Alzheimers society to help in research towards a cure and to help support those living with Dementia
This is an awful disease that has affected not just the older population but young people as well.Every year 41,000 people get diagnosed with this disease, it is the 4 th most common cancer and is Britains second biggest cancer killer, but it is treatable and curable if identified early. Money raise don Mot will go towards Bowel cancer UK whose mission is to fund targeted research, provide expert information and support to patients and their families, educate the public and professionals about the disease and campaign for early diagnosis and access to best treatment and care.Bowel cancer uks vision is a future where no one dies from bowel cancer which is why they need our support.
