APPEAL: Support the challenge

My mum Sandra was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 54 – a scary and heart-breaking time.

She’s one of more than 100,000 people living with MS in the UK – it’s a devastating condition with no cure.

People with MS might be fine one day but the next they might lose their sight or be unable to move.

I’m supporting the charity by getting involved in ChallengeMS – a fundraising event happening throughout September – all the money raised will go towards that vital research.

With ChallengeMS people can do anything from wearing an orange wig, to giving something up to hosting an event like a coffee morning.

I’d love your readers to join me and support the MS Society – they can find out more by going to
