As ever, it was going to be the Alzheimer's Society or the Big Issue today, so I looked for inspiration in the most trusty of places - F4cebook!
I asked which charities were closest to people's hearts and why, and received a reply from a lovely former colleague in four minutes!
Catriona chose the "Berkshire MS Therapy Centre because it keeps me on my feet!", so today's charity 'thang' was simply to make a donation online.
Thanks so much for donating to Berkshire MS Therapy Centre on JustGiving. We've successfully processed your donation and we'll transfer it directly to Berkshire MS Therapy Centre's bank account.
Thank you for your support towards the Berkshire MS Therapy Centre.
Your donation will be used to help local people with MS in and around Berkshire to manage the symptoms of their illness and reach their full potential. Thank You!
The Berkshire MS Therapy Centre Fundraising Team
The Berkshire Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre (BMSTC) is in Reading and provides therapies, information and practical and emotional support for people with multiple sclerosis, their carers and families in Berkshire and surrounding area. MS is a neurological disease that affects the central nervous system. Symptoms vary depending on the type of MS, and can affect any part of the body.
The BMSTC offers physical therapies in a comfortable and friendly environment to aid symptom management, promoting and enabling independence to improve well-being and quality of life. Last year, the centre provided 8,913 treatments and the cost of running the centre was £360,000.
