Story

On Sunday April 25 myself and Simon Chivers will be running the London Marathon in an attempt to raise a combined total of £3,000 for the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre. For those of you that know either of us personally, you will know that this will be a continuation of a joint effort where four of us ran the New York Marathon and raised over £10,0000 for the same charity in November. Last year, with your good help, across 2 marathons in 2 continents and 5 runners we raised over £14,000 for this charity - we would love to see this figure continue to rise.

 

I understand we may have approached you before (and that there's a credit crunch on the go) but every single penny you are able to donate will be extremely appreciated and will go directly towards suffers of Multilple Sclerosis in the following ways.

£10 will pay for an unlimited counselling call

£15 will pay for a years subscription to New Pathways   £25 will provide one mornings worth of Benefits advice and support.   £50 will pay for 10 CD copies of New Pathways.   £100 will pay for one day of a MS Specialist Advisor.   £500 will cover one third of the yearly costs involved in the training, telephone and other costs of one of Telephone Counsellors.  
MSRC are a small charity with a huge big heart and couldn't be more passionate about providing support for people affected by MS. Out of the 11 employees, there are 3 of them with a direct family member affected by MS and that's a pretty powerful incentive to making sure the services they provide are relevant.
MSRC don't spend funding on research, their focus is on today, and what help people need right now that will help them come to terms with their diagnosis and still live life to the full.
PLEASE HELP US SMASH £3,000 !

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: The Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation!


So please spare anything you can. Any questions, please give Tom Pope a shout on 07825396716.

Thanks again.
