Action MS Chief Executive, Ann Walker, recently visited St. Mary’s Grammar School, Magherafelt as part of a special awards presentation to thank Year 10 pupils for their tremendous efforts on behalf of people with Multiple Sclerosis.

Year 10 pupils took part in the Walk for MS during the summer term and raised a total of £3510.00 in aid of Action MS, Northern Ireland’s Multiple Sclerosis Charity.

In expressing her appreciation to pupils, Ann said: 

“Thanks to the generosity and support of schools like St. Mary’s Grammar School, the Walks for MS are at the core of Action MS support services. Action MS supports people living with Multiple Sclerosis, their families and carers in Northern Ireland.  St. Mary’s Grammar School enjoyed their morning’s walk and we are very grateful for their generous support.”  Ann went on to say: “The Walks for MS first started 30 years ago and have directly helped Action MS develop its support from a listening ear service to include support for children and families living with Multiple Sclerosis, support for young people, free legal advice and digital inclusion.”  The pupils and staff of St. Mary’s are proud to provide continued support for this local charity.
