Rock ‘n’ roll night raises money for MS Society
A ROCK and roll night has helped raise hundreds of pounds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Fiona Symonds, who has had MS for 10 years, held a celebration evening at the Foakes Hall to raise money for the charity that has helped her cope with the illness.
Despite having taken a toll on her, Miss Symonds said the evening with a huge success.
“The total money raised was �589.53, which will help people affected by MS to make their life slightly easier with medication or adaptation.
“Even though hosting this night has affected my MS and it has taken a few more days to recover, it was defiantly worth it just to see all the happy faces and the amount of money raised.”
