Birmingham & Solihull Group of the Motor Neurone Disease Association planted this “MND Tree” for all those who have lost somebody to Motor neurone Disease [MND] and hope that one day this disease will be cured. A memorial in the form of a beautiful living, growing, thing that is both
permanent and a pleasant to visit.

Anybody who would like to contribute, perhaps in the name of a loved one may do so
on this site. All proceeds will go to help MND Research and to support people wishing to help with MND Research.
Later as the tree comes into full bloom [May/June 2017/18] a ‘dedication’ will be held perhaps
with an appropriate personage to conduct the dedication.
The MND Tree is a memorial to those lost to this terrible disease - but as a
living, growing thing - also a symbol of hope for the future.

would wish everybody touched by MND to feel that this it is 'their tree."
Cannon Hill Park and the MND Tree are in the heart of Birmingham, at the heart of the
The MND Tree will help fund MND research – thus representing that hope for the future, for . . . . 'A World Free of MND.'
