Fundraising Concert For MND

Fundraising Concert For MND
Bodega, Wellington 7 June


Our mate Duncan has recently been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.

MND is a debilitating neurological condition that affects nerves that control voluntary muscles. They gradually stop working until the body stops functioning - while the mind is still active. MND has a prognosis of two to five years, and kills five people a day in the UK alone. There is no cure.

Rather than sitting still, Duncan's decided to do something about it.

A crew of friends and supporters from all around the globe will cycle from Vondelpark (Amsterdam) to Victoria Park (London) to get out there, get active, enjoy the ride and most importantly raise funds for MND research to help those diagnosed with MND in the future.

So us dudes in Wellington weren't gonna sit still either, and have organised this charity gig to help raise some funds:

Ride for MND in association with a lot of people, presents:


Barnaby Weir (Black Seeds)
The Postures
This Charming Mystery

+ Munt FM & VBC DJs spinning the latest in aural awesomeness

More acts tbc.

$10 Doorsales only.

SATURDAY 7 JUNE 2008
