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
