Fundraising for the Motor Neurone Disease Association

By DPF Admin5th April 2023Area Updates, Latest News
MDP Officer PC Paul Cocoran, known to many as ‘Coco’ is currently raising awareness of Motor Neurone Disease and is aiming to reach his target of £500 to help with research into this horrid disease.

PC Cocoran is sending a bear around the world with a small MNDA banner that his wife has made from one of Paul’s running vest.

The bear named Sergeant Major Rangoon has so far travelled intensively around the UK including a short tour of Northern Ireland and beyond to far away placed including Spain, New Zealand, Singapore, New York and many other overseas destinations, spreading the awareness of MND.

The bears journey started in Portsmouth and now whoever wants him can take Sergeant Major Rangoon on ‘Holiday’ with them and they then post photos and collect funds, he is then posted in his own special box to the next person and so on. It’s quite a sight on social media.


Coco’s ‘Going Silent’ one week fundraiser for Motor Neurone Disease Association

PC Cocoran has also decided to start his next challenge on his 63rd birthday 14th April.

Paul will go ‘Silent’ for one week and will communicate through sign cards to ensure he can still carry out his job as a Police Officer.

The funds he raises will help the MNDA in their research and finding a cure.

To support Paul latest challenge please visit his Just Giving page where you can read more about the inspiration behind the challenge and fundraising for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

We wish Paul the best of luck and thank him for his dedication to helping others.
