A year in the life... Celebrating the stories of five MSers over coffee and cake

Over the past year we have been following the progress of five people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) and capturing, in their own words, an insight into what it is like to live each day with the condition.

These eye-opening stories were recently published in our ‘A year in the life of…’ booklet, a project designed to explore the real-life experiences of MS through topics such as independence, mental health and physical wellbeing and to show how the funding from the National Lottery Community Fund has had a positive impact on the work of our Josephs Court wellness centre.

To celebrate the publication of this booklet, we were recently visited by Jess Leonard, Funding Officer of the National Lottery Community Fund, who met the incredible people behind the case study over coffee and a slice or two of cake.

Diana Crowe, Head of Services said, ‘It was great for our clients who participated in our case study project to meet Jess.

‘It gave them an opportunity to discuss how much they have enjoyed writing for MS-UK and reflecting on their own experiences.

‘Jess really enjoyed the afternoon meeting some of those who were benefiting from the funding awarded to MS-UK’s Josephs Court.’

From Diana and Dean, and the rest of the MS-UK team, we want to thank Jess for visiting us last week.
