MS CENTRE, CHARITY SHOP
and COFFEE POT

NOT JUST A SHOP!
read on.

The NEW MS Centre and Charity Shop opened on Monday 22nd March. If you look at the pictures you will see that it is so much more than just 'another' charity shop.

The Society secretary, Jane has long held the hope of creating a drop in centre for anyone with MS, their family and carers. It seemed a pipe dream to many, but they hadn't taken into account Jane's drive and determination.

Her enthusiasm has paid off and, both the shop and Coffee Pot opened on schedule.

The centre now boasts changing room, disabled toilet facilities, MS information centre and recently, a treatment room where various therapies can take place for people with MS.

Jane would like to thank all the volunteers she bribed, beat and blackmailed into helping make it work. So many people gave their time and effort willingly to make it happen. The usual stalwarts making huge efforts.

Thanks to everyone who helped.

DROP IN CENTRE


Newly diagnosed or have someone who has a worry about MS?.

The new Centre offers private rooms where you can get help finding out more about MS. Talking about your problems in confidence, is sometimes the first step in getting help. At the centre you will find others that have been in the same situation. You can find out about joining the MS society too.

It is the shop that provides the majority of the Branch income, thus enabling the committee to provide the services that you require. Opening times are:
Monday to Friday 10:00 – 17.00
Saturday 10:00 – 16.00

Help wanted



We really could do with some help in the shop. Anything you can do will help us continue to raise between £10,000 and £15,000 per year. With just 3 or 4 hours a week we could increase our target to £20,000. We always have lots of fun which makes the hard work so rewarding. If you feel you would like to help, ring the shop number above. Why not pop into the shop and see how things work. You never know, you might find a bargain in there too!!.
