Inside this

In December, the NMC will be saying farewell to Sarah Kelly, our Executive Director and co-founder of The NMC. Some fifteen years ago, Sarah and Kate Fox set up the Centre. The idea came about from Hebden Green High School. It appeared that once students with muscular dystrophy left school, opportunities were very limited. The Charity was first set up in 1989.

the NMC first opened its doors. After receiving a grant from Comic Relief, two care assistants were employed.

The NMC has since grown and gone from strength to strength. The Centre remains the only such facility in Europe/the world. Sarah explained to me that her greatest achievement in the last fifteen years has been setting up the Centre. She has most enjoyed meeting people that come to The NMC and also one of the biggest events in our calendar - the Spirit of Christmas. I know you would all like to thank Sarah for her enthusiasm, commitment and dedication to the The NMC and join me in wishing her a very

long and happy retirement. Sarah is most looking forward to spending time with her family. She will continue to support The NMC with The Spirit of Christmas event.


DIRECTOR On 21st September, The NMC welcomed Matthew Lanham, as Executive

Director. Matthew has been

getting to know employees, clients and supporters of the Centre. After an initial handover period with Sarah, he took over the day to day running of the NMC on 17th October. Matthew has spent the majority of his working life in the Post Office. He joined as Personnel Manager and went on to run major Automated sorting offices in Chester, Shrewsbury and Manchester. He then became Area Manager, running all aspects of collection, sorting and delivering mail. After some twenty years in the industry Matthew took voluntary redundancy.
