AWARENESS WEEK - 26 April till 2 May

We hope that the Supermarket Collections & the Sat Town Collection have all done well and that you
all gave a little of your time to help! Details of how much we raised will be in the next newsletter.

We hope to have some air time on the radio plus an article in the JEP so look & listen out for these!

Fundraising ideas – We are hoping to have several events in the near future, namely a PUB
CRAWL, a Sex in the City Evening & a Robothon so when we announce the details, please get
together with F4riends & Family to support them!

There has been a little confusion over this item – the Committee would like to
make sure that members are aware that this is the 25th Anniversary of the
Constitution of the MS (Jersey) Society NOT the MS Society as a whole! The
MS Society will be celebrating it’s Golden Anniversary next year.
We are planning on a BBQ to celebrate so keep watching this space!

Sadly we note the death of one of our members. Anne Osborne died on the 11 th
March 2010. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this sad time.
