MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS: Collections are vitally important

On behalf of the Multiple Sclerosis Society North Tyneside Branch, I would like to thank the people who so kindly contributed to our street collection in North Shields on Saturday, July 25.

We managed to collect a total of £243.52 on an inclement day.

Thank you to the generous people of Shields, who stopped by to make their generous donations.

Also, thank you to our collectors, many of whom suffer from Multiple Sclerosis.

These street collections, apart from the money raised for MS, are vitally important in raising the profile of our very active branch.
