The MS Society is the National Garden Scheme’s current guest charity, and we have donated £375,000 since 2015 to help provide practical support for everyone living with multiple sclerosis today, and the hope of a cure tomorrow. In 2018, the National Garden Scheme donated £145,000 to MS Society.
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable and incurable condition that affects people’s nervous systems. It can attack suddenly or progress steadily, bringing a range of symptoms which can include sight loss, incontinence, fatigue and mobility problems. No-one with MS can be sure when or how it will affect them next. For 100,000 people in the UK, it’s a daily reality.
The MS Society is the leading UK charity for people with MS; there are more than 100,000 people living with the condition in the UK. MS is unpredictable, and people typically start experiencing symptoms in their 20s or 30s.
The MS Society is fighting for better care and treatments, and provides support and grants to help people with MS deal with the daily challenges of the condition.
