I had the great pleasure of travelling to Bournemouth last weekend to help the Dorset MS Service deliver a Digesting Science event for their families.
The event was held in the incredibly well kitted out MS Society Osborne Centre in local West Parley. I was very impressed at the facilities in this centre and the programme of events that the branch runs to support people with and affected by MS.
The families that took part enjoyed learning about how MS affects eye-sight, bladder function, walking, how we treat MS and how to prevent MS. The hands on activities were enjoyed by children aged between 5 and 12 years old and the feedback on the event was hugely positive. Thank you to everyone who came along to make the morning such a success.
Special thanks to Rod Slip for having us and Claire Williams and her colleagues from the Dorset MS Team based at Poole Hospital Michelle, Kirsty and Hannah for such great organisation ….and for the cake!
