Posted on: October 30 2017

Hi everyone,

On Saturday 28 October our clients at Josephs Court got together for our swinging 60s cyclothon – and it was a great day!

Thank you to everyone that got involved…you managed to clock up over 300 kilometres! Check out the Facebook photo album now.

The cyclothon event is part of our FES Appeal. We are aiming to raise £22.5k for a brand new FES bike for Josephs Court. This is our Essex based wellness centre for anyone affected by multiple sclerosis in our local area.

Thank you again for a groovy day everyone!

Best wishes,

Diana

Diana Crowe, Head of Services

MS-UK Halloween Tool Kit

If you are doing anything this weekend for Halloween, or going to an event, why not check out our handy toolkit for inspiration and last minute ideas.

How about a gruesome lucky dip, pay to dive your hand into a bucket filled with jelly or coloured water and have the chance to win a prize. Fundraising doesn’t always have to be great big events. How about a last minute raffle. Ask your guests to donate a prize, then raffle them off at your party!

Even if you are attending someone else’s event – I’m off to a friend’s party and only last week we decided to have a fancy dress competition! We are asking people to donate a £1 and come along in their scariest or most inventive costumes.

There are loads of great fun ways to get involved in fundraising, whether it’s a great big event, or a last minute activity, they can be great fun, and a great way to make a big difference!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and a truly spooktacular Halloween!

If you need any help, or want to show off your last minute ideas feel free to drop me an email at anna@ms-uk.org.

Come and join in with me for the Halloween holiday season and why not organise your own spooky fundraising event with our Halloween toolkit?

As you can see from the photo, I’m always game for dressing up and getting in the spirit of things, some people say I have never looked better!! Why not get your friends to dress up too and have a spooky themed Halloween party.

Or how about a ‘carve the pumpkin’ competition with the winner getting a bag of spooky treats? We’ve got lots of ideas for Halloween, so get in touch and I can help.

When the evenings get colder and darker it can be boring just sitting around at home but this is a perfect way to use our Halloween toolkit and make those dark nights even more fun and spooky.

The toolkit has everything you need for the day and it is really easy to download off our website but if you need anything more please do contact me on mark@ms-uk.orgI am also here to offer advice on best costumes to wear and best face to carve on pumpkins.

From your scary looking Frankenstein.
