Slice of sweetness for MS

Have your say

A WOMAN is encouraging her friends and family to join in a cake break to boost the funds of a charity.

Rona Myers, 52, from Dawdon, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 1999, after she was affected by symptoms including pain, mobility problems and fatigue.

Now she is to help others with the same condition.

She is holding a coffee morning at Dawdon Community Centre from 1pm to 4pm on Friday, May 4, to raise money for the MS Society.

Cakes, other sweet treats and pies will be on sale, along with hot drinks, a tombola, raffle and a bouncy castle for toddlers.

Information on MS, and how those with it and their carers can find support will also be available.

Rona sister Joan Baines, 54, also has MS, but suffers from different symptoms.

Rona said: “It affects everyone differently, but there are hundreds of people out there who have MS and just don’t know it, but I believe a positive attitude has helped me along the way.”
