Each year at Armstrong Foulkes we choose a local charity to support from nominations made by our clients. For the past year, we have been supporting the Middlesbrough Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre. For further information about the services they provide, please see their website at www.middlesbroughmstherapy.org
As we have now been supporting this charity for almost a year, the time has come for us to choose a new local charity to support but we wanted to give one final fundraising push in order to raise as much money for the users of the Middlesbrough MS Therapy Centre. Our Easter related fundraising activities included a “Name The Bunny” competition to win a Hotel Chocolat Easter gift bag, a tombola and a cake and sweet stall. People were very enthusiastic with their involvement and very generous with their donations (although one did want to check before buying a chocolate cornflake cake that we had used Kellogg’s cornflakes!). In total from this event alone we raised over £230.
The Middlesbrough MS Therapy Centre will shortly let us know how much we have raised in total over the past year so watch this space. For the next 12 months, we will be supporting Teesside & District Society for the Blind. This charity was nominated by one of our clients who lost her sight in 2011 as a result of medical negligence. She attends the centre 3 times a week and it has been a huge support to her over the recent years.
