Jimmy Magee, the Memory Man, was our patron until he sadly passed away on Wednesday 20th September 2017. Jimmy took his patronage very seriously and went above and beyond to represent the IMNDA and spread awareness on the impact of MND.
We could write a book on the number of things he did for us. He climbed into a boxing ring, swung a golf club, released a charity single, promoted the women’s mini marathon, managed a soccer team… on crutches; he’s even climbed into bed with actress Mary McEvoy to drink tea for MND! The list is endless.
Jimmy never really said no to anything we asked him to do. He never failed to make us laugh and he truly felt like a friend to us all. He met and knew so much about sport stars but he was our superstar.
And he still continues to support us. Now his personal library of almost 1000 books is to be auctioned off for the IMNDA. The collection includes books and magazines from as far back as the 1960s.
If you, or someone you know, would relish the opportunity to own these fantastic books, then all you have to do is visit www.galabid.com/jimmy and all the details are there!!
