Our Receptionist Jane to take on a very personal challenge...
Spinnaker Tower Abseil Saturday 3rd June 2017 in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
"I am doing this challenge because I am lucky to be able to do so. My lovely brother Marcus would have loved to have had the chance to do something as exciting as this. However, Marcus first showed the symptoms of MS at 19 yrs old. Frequent relapses soon led to Primary Progressive MS being diagnosed.
Multiple Sclerosis is as yet without any cure.
Always the optimist and happy to trial any new treatments - unfortunately nothing helped and Marcus succumbed to MRSA in July 2001 and passed away at the far too young age of 34.
Therefore, in honour of Marcus's 50th Birthday, which would have been this month. I hope that my little abseil challenge down the Spinnaker Tower, along with the rest of my team, will help raise funds and awareness into Multiple Sclerosis and the daily challenges those that suffer with this illness go through on a daily basis.
