The Tavistock Branch of the Musucular Dystrophy Campaign has successfully organised an annual respite holiday for local young people with MD for over 35 years.

Through our Holiday Project, we can:

  • provide young people with MD with a unique opportunity to socialise with others in a similar situation, as well as the chance to integrate in a fun way with able-bodied young people - a much-needed chance to escape the reality of knowing that they will die at a young age.

  • provide a well-earned break for their regular carers and families. In particular parents have a chance to focus their attention on siblings for a while.

  • enable our young volunteer helpers to experience the problems facing those with disabilities and to widen their own horizons.

Annual Events

Tavistock MD Party
We hold a party each year -
usually in January. This is a great
chance for our MD members to
meet and thank our wonderful
supporters - and to have a good,
fun time together!
If you would like to come along
and meet the group,
please contact us.

_____________________

Each year we hold a
Collection Week
to raise funds for the
national Muscular Dystrophy
Campaign. This usually takes
place in June and we are always
looking for more volunteers to
help collect - either through
our house-to-house collection or
for an hour in town on Flag Day.
Please contact us if you
are able to help.
