Ian Pratt MND Foundation
The Ian Pratt MND Foundation was set up by Ian Pratt in 2016 to support people living with MND.
It has three main aims:
- To raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease, MND
- To support those affected by MND and their families
- To support research into the causes and hopefully, one day, a cure for MND, in particular the research being undertaken by professor Pam Shaw at SITraN in Sheffield.

The Ian Pratt MND Foundation was established to support people and families living with MND.
100% of funds raised go directly into fulfilling charitable objectives, we do not spend donations on salaries, as we do not have ANY PAID STAFF. We don’t lease cars, buildings or equipment.
We have 7 trustees who volunteer their time AND have been directly affected by the devastation caused by MND.
Our only motivation is to improve the lives of people living with MND and our vested interest is finding a cure as we have lived or are living with this disease.
We are a fledgling charity and need your help NOW. You can donate (worldwide) using this link OR if you are running a marathon, jumping out of a plane, flinging yourself over an embankment or viaduct, peddling until your bum hurts, getting down and dirty in an endurance rally or having a coffee morning, please nominate us on your Just Giving as your preferred charity.
Our charity is registered with the Charities Commission in England.
I can assure you that the Foundation will appreciate and direct your donation directly to our charitable objectives.
Please share, share and share this post. Together we will make a difference to families devastated by Motor Neurone Disease.
Chairman, Ian Pratt MND Foundation.
