Meet the winners of this year's Friends of MS-UK Awards!
The annual Friends of MS-UK Awards were launched in 2016 to recognise the commitment and valued support of some very special people. Each year we present just five awards to those who have gone above and beyond to support the charity and raise awareness of multiple sclerosis (MS). Many thousands of people make our work possible each year, so selecting just five is a tough task, but it makes the awards even more special to us and those who receive them.
Every day this week, we'll be revealing each of the well-deserved winners and finding out, in their own words, what it means to be awarded such an accolade...
Upon joining us in January 2016, Brendan became an important member of our volunteering team, supporting clients at our Wellness Centre Josephs Court, often three or four times per week!
Brendan’s dedication enabled MS-UK to provide support to people affected by MS and other neurological conditions, and he gave us many hours of professional support.
He said: 'To be honest, I feel quite humbled and proud to get this award, it’s not something I ever thought about. I enjoyed volunteering at Josephs Court as soon as I started, there is something about the place that draws you in.'
