Event description: Our group meets on the first Thursday of each month, but as New Years Day falls on a Thursday our first meeting for 2015 will be 8th January.
The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society in Shropshire (Shrewsbury and District Branch) offers support, self help, advice and friendship to people with Multiple Sclerosis, their families and friends. All are welcome to join us.
Shropshire is covered by 3 branches of the MS Society, based in Shrewsbury, Telford and Oswestry. The branches also aim to raise money for work locally and to support research into finding a cure.
On the mornings of our meetings we do various things that can help you as an MS sufferer. In the afternoon we usually have a guest speaker. For more information about what we do please call our branch helpline on 01743 718641
To start 2015 our guest speaker for this month is Ruby, Deputy Chairperson of Shropshire Disability Network. She will talk to us about their organisation and the work they do for people in Shropshire & beyond who have a disability, long term condition and carers. There will be handouts, and leaflets etc about their work will be available.
We hope you will come along and give SDN a warm welcome.
