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.
Huntington’s Disease Youth Organisation are holding a HDYO Australian/New Zealand Camp on 12 - 15 January 2018 on the Sunshine Coast.
The camp is for families affected by Huntington’s Disease and is aimed at 15 – 25 year olds but there is a little flexibility.
The costs for accommodation and travel are covered by HDYO.
Applications are to be made directly to HDYO
We are fundraising again with the Entertainment book. There are great early bird offers, if you pre-purchase before the 31st March you will receive additional vouchers worth over $200, the book will be available at the end of March and contains many 2 for 1 or up to 50% offers from restaurants, cafes, entertainment and activities, travel and more.
The book will be available in hard copy or digital. The cost per book is $65, from which MS Waikato will receive $13. The book value is over $20,000.
Thank you for your support.
