Property Services team to take on Isle of Wight Challenge to raise funds and awareness for Motor Neurone Disease
United Living Group is committed to building strong community relationships and ensuring it creates a positive legacy that helps local communities to thrive.
As part of its charitable giving ethos, United Living Group supports various local and national good causes and encourages employees to get involved with fundraising and volunteering.
In that spirit, to raise vital funds and awareness for Motor Neurone Disease (MND), a willing team from the Property Services pillar of the business will be walking the entire 106km coastline of the Isle of Wight over two days on 10th & 11th July 2021.
The team consists of United Living Chief Operating Officer, Conor Bray, Managing Director, Property Services, Dave Rooney, Business Development Director, Paul Maghie, Divisional Director, Andrew Broadbent and Operations Manager, Tommy Nightingale. Joining them will be Jamie Thomson, Dave Tarantuik, Andy Morrison, Jon Phillips and Jonny Evans.
All of the money raised will go to the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA), which is the only charity in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland focused on improving MNDA care, research and campaigning.
The team has raised over £10,000 and is looking to increase that figure to ensure that as much money as possible is fundraised for the MNDA.

Andy Broadbent, Divisional Director, United Living Property Services, said: “The team have been training hard (well, some of us) and are ready to take on the Isle of Wight Challenge in just a few weeks. We want to thank everyone who has supported us and donated so far towards our funding goal. We are very close to passing the target and hope to exceed it by the time we have completed the walk.
“MNDA is a charity that is close to the hearts of the team, non-more so than Tommy Knightingale, whose Mum is currently battling the illness. Any support would be greatly appreciated towards this worthwhile cause.”
Motor Neuron Disease is a fatal, rapidly progressing disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. MND can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk, swallow and eventually breath. Unfortunately, there is no cure or effective treatment. Therefore, funding for research and drug trials is much needed.
