Help Chris Charnock and his family

Just over a year ago our close friend Chris Charnock was diagnosed with motor neurone disease. At just 35 years old this was a huge shock to Chris and his young family.

Motor neurone disease is an awful debilitating condition that will ultimately take Chris away from his beautiful wife and children. They are a hardworking, generous and genuine family that shouldn’t have to be suffering this awful tragedy.

Various close friends and family have run marathons and cycled across the country doing great work to raise awareness and money for the MNDa charity, a testament to how loved and popular Chris is.

But now as Chris’ condition worsens, we are asking for direct help to adapt his house, to enable him to stay at home during his final years. We would really like to make this happen, so he can spend as much time with his wife and children as possible.

Chris has been assessed for a disability support grant to fund the modifications to his house, but he was not deemed eligible. Now as his health deteriorates he has had to sign off on long term sick, and there is no feasible way of him affording the changes required to live out his life with as much dignity as a man of his age should be allowed.

As it stands he has been quoted £40,000 pounds to make all the alterations to his house, so that he can live downstairs, in a motorised wheelchair accessible extension with suitable bathroom. Chris will have to pay for any modifications to his home that cost more than £1000.

I cannot tell you how much this would mean to them and we would greatly appreciate any help in supporting this wonderful family at their time of need. It would be amazing to help share some of the burden and relieve at least some of the stress they are having to deal with, at this difficult time.

Thank you for reading and please give generously.
