Christine Wall, Shop Manager and Trustee, along with some of our fantastic volunteers, organised another brilliant summer event, a 50's/60's Rock & Roll event, which took place outside our two charity shops. There was a Rock an Roll band and people danced, our volunteers dressed up in the period clothes and they looked great. We had a popcorn machine and a kids merry-go-round, as well as a raffle and lucky dip. It was altogether a sucessful event and it raised funds for our charity, which of course helps people with MS by offering to do Gardening, Decoration and other DIY type jobs. We alse make regulare donations to the BrAMS Centre based in the Brain Cente at Southmead Hospital.
Thank you and well done to Christine and everyone who made the event a great sucess

Over 100,000 people have MS and we do our best to help people in South Gloucester, Bristol and part of N/Somerset.
Depending on your circumstances and the work that you need help with, we try to help, although we ask you to please be patient and try to understand that we may not always have a volunteer in your area, but will always try to find one to carryout your work.
If you or someone you know has MS and can no longer carryout jobs and maybe can’t afford to pay a company for jobs which need doing around the home and garden, please call us for an application form, we will then arrange for someone to look a the needed job and we will hopefully be able to help.
There is no charge for the service that we offer, but ask if possible you pay for or towards materials used and perhaps make a donation, thank you.

We have helped hundreds of people and want to continue to help more. Without our your help with volunteering or donating items to the shop we couldn't help so many people and so please help if you can.
