Rosie, aged 36, said: “Amanda Borg and I are organising a Christmas makeup fundraiser event for the MND Association at the Southport Coaster on Sunday 3rd December 2023. 

“This event is being arranged in memory of my Dad who passed from ALS, a type of degenerative motor neurone disease, six weeks ago. 

“He was an incredible man. An intelligent, kind and generous family man. 

“I’m working with over 20 local Southport businesses to make it a really good afternoon of Christmas style makeup and a raffle with lots of prizes. 

“The masterclass will be taught by local makeup artist, Amanda Borg, who has recently been nominated as a finalist in the top 10 best bridal makeup artists in the UK at the upcoming Beauty and Aesthetics Awards 2023.

“We aim to sell between 100-200 tickets and raise around £3,000 for the MND Association Merseyside branch.” 

The Motor Neurone Disease Association supports everyone living with and affected by MND to access the help and support they need. 

Whether you want to speak to the charity over the phone, connect with others affected by MND or find local support, you can discover different ways of finding help. 

The organisation funds research, improves care and provides support for people with MND, their families and carers.
