My wife Mary was diagnosed with MS in 1997 and she has used both the Nailsea and Brightwell centres to obtain some relief from her symptoms.

In October 2013 the then chairman Ken Edis collared me in the cafe area and asked for my help to grow the Trading Arm of the Charity, which I am pleased to say the whole centre team has managed to achieve.

Having become involved with the running of the Centre and having met many of the inspirational members who manage their condition with considerable humour and cheer it is a privilege to give some time to help others.

The reward for me has been to help to move the Centre to a position of financial strength from a position of surviving from month to month.

It is also great to be considered as part of the team that has risen to the many challenges over the years to ensure that the Centre continues to grow and expand.
