Topsail Insurance to undertake the MND Ice Bucket Challenge


It is an issue close to our hearts as Topsail Manager Laura Ruse’s late grandmother suffered from MND. Laura had this to say:

“MND is the most debilitating and heart-breaking disease; My grandmother Jo was my inspiration in life. She was an amazing lady, full of character and she was always sure to light up any room she entered. She was an artist and keen potter - creating amazing pieces of art that still remind us of her talent when we use and admire them.

One of the most painful things I have ever witnessed was my grandmother losing the ability to do the things she loved most; pot, garden, cook, and then even hug her loved ones – the disease slowly but surely took hold, initially with her hands and fine motor skills, then gross motor skills until she could no longer walk, speak, lift herself or even communicate – although her smile never faded and always gave us great comfort!

I am happy to be taking part in the Ice Bucket Challenge. If it makes just one more person aware of the condition then it’s worth it. Please support, donate and help raise awareness in any way you can”.
