MS Awareness week runs from Monday 28th August to Sunday 3rd September.  Please can you help? Awareness week is an opportunity to raise both awareness of Multiple Sclerosis and to fundraise?

We need volunteers to help on our stalls on Wednesday 30th, Thursday 31st or Friday 1st September – do you have a couple of hours you could spare?  Perhaps you may have friends or family who would assist with a stall too.

There are many different ways to fundraise and you may like to organise something yourself; perhaps you could sell cup cakes, invite people to create a line of coins, encourage colleagues to take part in a loud tie day  or you may have a great idea of your own. 

If you are able to help in any way please phone Janet on 8344740 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
