Tickets are on sale for a fundraiser as part of a Corby woman’s bid to raise money for life-changing treatment for her uncle.

Sinead Mullen is trying to raise £30,000 for her uncle Dick, who was born and raised in Corby and has multiple sclerosis.

She is now hosting a Kick the Stick fundraising dance this coming Friday (April 8) at 7.30pm at the Corby Irish Centre.

She said: “It’s been really hard for him as he’s a very proud person.

“His form of MS isn’t as aggressive as some others is but he needs a walking aid and is now blind in one eye.

“If we can raise the money the treatment would be vital as in some trials abroad it’s completely eradicated the condition.

“I’ve seen one case where somebody went from being wheelchair-bound to walking and riding bikes.

“It’s absolutely amazing and I hope we can raise enough for him to have it.”

Tickets to the event cost £5 and can be purchased from the Sun Shack in Pytchley Court or Tea Jenny Cottage in Corby old village’s High Street.
