To celebrate International Day of Charity on 05 September, we’ve put together a blog to let you know all the different ways that you can contribute to MS-UK and support the vital work that we do for people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS).
International Day of Charity was established by the United Nations to encourage people all around the world to help others ‘through volunteer and philanthropic activities’. To learn more about this global celebration of charities and the objective behind International Day of Charity, click here.
There’s several different ways that you can support MS-UK, and we’d love to have you involved in any way that you can and become a part of #TeamPurple. Our fundraising events are a great way to achieve something amazing for a good cause whilst creating memories that last a lifetime.
From the Virgin Money London Marathon, the Three Peaks Challenge, National Skydive Day and everything in between, all of our fundraisers’ efforts are hugely appreciated and make an enormous difference. If you’d like to learn more about how you can fundraise for MS-UK click here, or contact our Fundraising team today who will support you every step of the way!
If you choose to donate to MS-UK, there’s a variety of ways that you can do this. As an independent charity, we do not receive any government funding and rely on donations. By donating, you’ll be directly supporting people with MS to live happier and healthier lives and help improve our services. From our Helpline to the specialised MS counselling that MS-UK offers, and our huge range of online activities, there’s something for anyone who needs support.
Join our Supporters’ Club!
We’re so excited to launch our brand-new Supporters’ Club! It’s a wonderful way to support MS-UK and ensure that anyone affected by MS can access the help that they need today, tomorrow and in the future. A small monthly donation can make a huge difference. From as little as £5 a month, you can help someone’s mental and physical health, helping them to live a happier and healthier life.
