Ash said: “Mum was 59 when she passed away in 2013. She was always smiling and laughing and was very much family-oriented around us three boys and her two daughter’s in law.
“We decided to raise money to find some sense of legacy for mum, to make as many people as possible aware of this dreadful Motor Neurone Disease (MND), and to raise some cash. MND rarely gets any funding and there is still no cure, and as the disease first affected mum’s speech we want to buy iPads and Boogie Boards to help people communicate.
“They were invaluable to mum when she wanted to communicate with us because she had no way of talking.”
Ash, 28, from Eastbourne, and brothers Aaron, 36, an architect from Horsham, and Ryan, a 33-year-old Civil servant from Surrey, and other members of their family make up Team Wilmott. They have taken part in a host of fund-raising events.
