The Centre would like to help the MS Society to raise vital awareness of multiple sclerosis before their 60th anniversary in 2013. 100,000 people have been diagnosed with MS in the UK and it affects around 600,000 people including family, friends and carers. The MS Society helps people with MS to better understand and manage their condition and assists them through the difficult times. There are 300 branches of the MS Society across the UK that people can turn to for advice and our fundraising will go toward providing local support as well as vital research into MS.
There is real hope that a cure for MS will be found in our lifetime and potential new MS treatments will be developed in the next 10-15 years – The Centre will be a part of making this happen.
