Gracewell of Camberley Resident Co-Writes New Single for Motor Neurone Charity

Gracewell  |  December 20, 2019

A resident at Gracewell of Camberley has co-written a new song to support the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Robert Murphy teamed up with his friend Neil Samuels to pen the single, called ‘It Makes No Sense at All.’ The song’s creation brought together outstanding musicians who gave up their time to bring Robert and Neil’s vision to life and raise money for the charity, which coordinates care, support and research for people affected by the condition.

Rob is only 54 years old and was diagnosed with the rare terminal condition Motor Neurone Disease in December 2018. Being from the local area, he lived in Camberley and Farnborough before making the decision to move to Gracewell in January 2019.

He previously worked for British Airways as a push bag driver and has spent the last three years visiting countries across the world on his bucket list, including Cambodia, Portugal, Norway, South Africa and Mauritius. At Gracewell of Camberley, Robert pursues one of his greatest passions: Chelsea football club. Rob has been a Chelsea supporter his whole life and recently attended the Chelsea – Newcastle match with his friends.

Having launched the official video on 16 December, It Makes No Sense at All is now available on iTunes, as well as most other major download and streaming services.

Jeorgia Jones, Home Admissions Advisor at Gracewell of Camberley, said:

“We are delighted to see Ron use his song-writing talents for such a worthwhile cause. We are thrilled to be supporting his work and think it is amazing that he has been involved with this project. The more the single sells, the more we can all support the crucial work of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.”
