Jimmy's Tribute Fund
Created by Jeff on 20/02/2008
Welcome to the official Jimmy Johnstone Tribute Fund. We have created this page to help raise money for Motor Neurone Disease Association. Please consider making an online donation or if you prefer you can help me raise money for this Tribute Fund by creating an online sponsorship page to mark a special event or occasion.
Jimmy Johnstone was first noticed when he was 13 and was offered a job as a ballboy at Parkhead, where he quickly made an impression. He made his first team debut in 1963, before he was 19. He soon became a favourite with the fans with his enormous talent. He was very quick on the wing and liked to take on the defence to create chances for himself and team mates.
Jimmy was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in 2002. MND is a rapidly progressive and fatal disease of the nervous system which kills five people a day in the UK. There is no known cause or cure.
The Jimmy Johnstone MND Tribute Fund has been set up as a tribute to Jimmy and will raise money for
1. The Motor Neurone Disease Association (Northampton) which funds care and research for people affected by Motor Neurone Disease across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
2. The Scottish Motor Neurone Disease Association The SMND Association exists to help and support all those affected by MND specifically in Scotland. The Association provides specialist care and support through its care team, equipment loan and information services. Research is encouraged and promoted into all aspects of this disease.
