There are currently around 80 people in Leeds being treated for motor neurone disease (MND).

The Leeds Hospitals Charity aims to raise £5m to build a specialist MND care centre in Leeds to give people with MND the best quality of life.

The Rob Burrow Centre would see all MND services housed under one roof for the first time.

Rob Burrow is a former Leeds Rhinos player who has been courageously sharing his story of motor neurone disease since he was diagnosed at the age of 37.

So far around £2m has been raised, so there is still a long way to go to reach the £5m target, and Martin hopes to raise awareness of the cause.
