Liversidge family - Making Memories 3

Meet Jason, Liz, Lilly and Poppy, a family  supported by the MCF since Jason was diagnosed with motor neurone disease.

The Liversidge family

Jason’s diagnosis of Fabry disease in 2012 and motor neurone disease less than a year later has been difficult for the Liversidge family to come to terms with. But our daily living grants have made it a little bit easier, and our grants to fund day trips help them to spend quality time together.

The Bendrigg Trust

The Bendrigg Trust provides adventure activities for disabled and disadvantaged people, and our grant of £40,000 has funded ceiling hoists for their new fully accessible residential block.

We invited Jason, Liz, Poppy and Lilly to be among the first guests to stay at the new centre and take part in the outdoor activities on offer.

Making Memories

Our three-part mini documentary series  follows the family’s adventures at the Bendrigg Trust in Cumbria, as they make the most of their time together and build lasting memories.
