BBC Lifeline Appeal raises £13,000

Our BBC Lifeline Appeal which broadcast on BBC One in June has raised more than £13,000. 

The Appeal, presented by TV chef Tom Kerridge, featured three people living with MS and focused on their experiences.

Stuart, Sasha, Val and Tom (whose father had MS) also talked about the difference our work made to their lives. And to the lives of people around them.

Reflecting on the Appeal

Val lives in North Wales and volunteers for the Conwy and Denbighshire MS Society group. She said:

“We were delighted when the BBC asked us if they could film at our group, it was a privilege. I was nervous to see the film, but thought it was very good…the way it focused on the experiences of different people. I know what all of them are going through.

"Straight after the broadcast I was getting lots of phone calls and messages. Everyone was so pleased! The film has been great at raising awareness and money.”

Thank you!
