ACTION MS FUNDRAISING WALK
Action MS Chief Executive, Mrs Ann Walker, visited St. Mary’s Grammar School this week for a special Awards Presentation to thank Year 10 pupils for their tremendous efforts on behalf of people with multiple sclerosis.
Organised by Mr Brady (Head of Year 10), pupils took part in a Walk for MS in June at Meadowbank Sports Arena and raised a total of £2,346.98 in aid of Action MS, Northern Ireland’s Multiple Sclerosis Charity.
In thanking the pupils, Mrs Walker 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.” Mrs Walker 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.”
Lizzie Hale, Niamh Moore, Olivia O’Kane, Cara Bradley and Ana McGrath all received Silver certificates because individually they raised between £50 and £99.
Joseph Quinn and Adam Lynch received Gold certificates, and will be attending the Thank You Luncheon in January 2019, because individually they raised £100 or more.
91 pupils received Thank You Certificates and 23 received Bronze.
