The MS Society Northern Ireland is appealing to churches to support its ‘Get Loud about MS’ week which runs from April 26-May 3.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system. It is the most common disabling neurological illness among young adults and affects around 100,000 people in the UK. Northern Ireland (with Scotland) has the highest prevalence of MS in the world, with over 4000 people affected by MS.
The charity is hoping that during MS Week church groups will consider holding a fundraising event, such as a coffee morning, cake sale or a sponsored walk or even simply a church door / retirement collection in support of the Society’s work with families affected by MS here in Northern Ireland.
