Patron Support Messages

The Muscle Help Foundation currently has two Patrons. Both have generously supported the charity and our CEO Michael McGrath in different ways over many years. They are:

Lorraine Kelly, CBE (since 2008)

Sir Kenneth Branagh (since 2006)

As a direct consequence of COVID-19, both individuals provided heartfelt messages of support and hope for our vulnerable community. Please watch, share and consider how you can support our cause either by making a donation or reaching out to get involved especially during these challenging times.

‘Shackleton’s Spirit – What would Shackleton do?’

‘There is Always Hope’
By Sir Kenneth Branagh


The charity would like to thank talented filmmaker Stephanie Castelete-Tyrrell of Four Wheel Drive Productions who was commissioned for her script writing skills.

On a separate note, Stephanie from Northamptonshire recently won a prestigious Award of Recognition from The Best Shorts Film Competition for her inspirational and educational documentary titled ‘Muscle Warriors’ – the film aims to inform audiences on how having Muscular Dystrophy (MD) can affect an individual’s mental health.
