Cliftonville Football Club are pleased to provide our backing to a charitable endeavour being supported by former Reds goalkeeper Peter Cherrie.
Though FND Awareness Day took place last month, the #WeCare4FND campaign continues in earnest and Cherrie – who won the League Cup with Cliftonville in 2014 – is working to highlight the various efforts being made to raise some much-needed awareness of Functional Neurological Disorders (FND), including Non Epileptic Attack Disorder (NEAD), with further information available at www.neurosymptoms.org.
Peter’s wife Justine – a regular at Solitude during Cherrie’s spell at the Club – has FND and the duo teamed up with the Scotsman’s current employers Derry City to produce the following video ahead of last month’s coordinated drive:
In addition to raising general awareness, this year’s #WeCare4FND campaigns include highlighting the amazing effort, love and dedication of people, both adults and children, who care for someone who has been diagnosed with FND. This is particularly more difficult than the caring community of more commonly-known conditions given the current lack of awareness.
Cliftonville FC urge our supporters to do whatever they can to improve their own personal education on the condition to help make a difference to the many adults and children who are living with FND, with full details on this year’s FND Awareness Day accessible here.
