Charity pleased to raise £1,000 for MS

A woman with multiple sclerosis has thanked people who attended a garden party earlier this month.

The event, in Rothwell, raised more than £1,000 for the Kettering and District MS Branch through a variety of activities. Committee member Michelle Dix said all funds raised would be going towards branch funds to help those diagnosed with MS acquire equipment and grants for respite care, as well as towards branch activities. She added: “It was a lot of planning and organising but we raised a wonderful £1,000.48, a good effort I think. It was a very relaxed four hours.”
