After the past few years fundraising for MND Charities I felt that It was time I opened up what I had been doing to other great causes out there. This isnt because I stopped caring about one cause over another, it's because loads of really awful, and crappy things are happening in this world. Happening to people I know and love, happening to people I don't know but who have taken then time to support the 12 previously. Basically, I felt the 12 was becoming more about my challenges, than things I cared about. And that wasn't the point. So with a lack of any idea of what to do next, and no way that I could realistically see to out do last year (see becoming more about the challenge!) and I knew I couldnt' let the 12 just go, I decided that the 12 in 12 would be 12 charities in 12 months instead. Each month a different charity will fall under the 12 spotlight as much as I can.
Williams Syndrome Foundation
The Brain Tumour Charity
MND Scotland / Irish Motor Neurone Disease

This year the 12 needs to more more about you!!
