Pete's No Beard Or Hair Cuts 2019 (Colour in December) Challenge for MS Trust

@HairyPete sat at his fundraising & MS Trust awareness table in our local Shopping Centre again last Wednesday 19th June. It seemed quite a low footfall again but he raised £87.11 so he's very pleased. He also spoke with 3 people who either had MS or a connection with it. They were pleased to receive verbal and written information and were supportive of Pete in return. 

With another half a year still to go we feel the word is spreading well in this locality. He will be back at his table on August 21st when we plan to include a free activity for younger children as it will be the school holidays - we won't stop teens and adults having a go, but the little prizes might not suit! More about this when we have it ready.

We have planned a trip to Letchworth in July to visit MS Trust HQ (Spirella Building). It will be wonderful to meet the fundraising team including our contact Erika. These supportive and friendly people will get to stroke The Beard and I've heard mention of a video. Where can I hide? We will report back soon afterwards.

Meanwhile, I will let you know as and when the Fund is increased. Currently running at £1188.06

The hair, beard and fund are all g(r)owing well and we hope to hit the £1,500 mark before I'm back at our local shopping centre in August. We're very much looking forward to meeting all the brilliant team at MS Trust HQ next month. I haven't yet given permission for them to stroke The Beard, but I probably will.

 

Now there's an idea; charge people for rummaging in the undergrowth. OK, I know there's a gag in there somewhere. :halo:

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.
