Muscular Dystrophy UK at Pit Stop 3!

Muscular Dystrophy UK are excited to have a pitstop for the first time and want to raise awareness of the 9,000 people living with a muscle-wasting condition in Scotland. We will have Rock Choir, Garioch Fiddlers and Granite City Brass Band performing alongside draughts and jenga to play with.

With limited access to neuromuscular specialists, a diagnosis can feel daunting and isolating. Jackie Munro, our specially trained Regional Information, Advocacy and Support Manager at MDUK provides a multi-faceted service to individuals living with muscle-wasting conditions. Jackie supports families in Scotland financially, clinically, and emotionally. She provides advice and practical support to enable these individuals to access the services, benefits, and accessible equipment they are entitled to.

Everyone who fundraises will help those in Scotland. A person living with Muscular Dystrophy describes the support provided ...

“I have days that I call “only my eyelashes do not hurt”. On these days I cannot physically or mentally deal with all the calls, emails and messages. Jackie, Muscular Dystrophy UK Regional Information, Advocacy and Support Manager is right there to help.”
