Christmas continues for Motor Sport for MS!
Those nice people at the Milton Keynes Amateur Operatic Society, the team behind this year's panto, Sleeping Beauty have just donated us £350.
Our massive thanks go to my old mate Kev Amies, John Dowell, all of the Dreams 'n' Wishes team, on stage, backstage, and front of house plus all of the lovely patrons who attended this year's 'Sleeping Beauty' Pantomime.
Don't forget MKAOS will be putting on their version of 'Shrek the Musical' from the 3rd to the 6th of June, tickets are available on the MKAOS website, as are next year's panto tickets although it is a secret as to what production they will be putting on.
Oh no it's not, oh yes it is.
STOP PRESS, IT'S........... CINDERELLA!
Another fantastic result for Motor Sport for MS.
Earlier today I received this message from Rick Shortle’s daughter Tina, whose Daughter Bethan is attending Brighton College, Sussex. A while ago Bethan informed us that she was pitching MS4MS to be a chosen charity for one of this year’s charity events.
Well, this is going to happen. Thank you so much, Bethan Sharps. x
Fenwick Fashion Show
We are excited to announce that the annual Fenwick Fashion Show will be taking place on Tuesday 3rd March at 7pm. Each year the Fenwick Lower Sixth girls come together to host one of the main House charity events of the academic year.
This year we are supporting two charities chosen by the Fenwick girls. The first is Great Ormond Street Hospital, which does phenomenal work providing specialist care for more than 40,000 children a year. Our second charity is Motor Sport for MS, a charity which raises money towards the Multiple Sclerosis Society, through setting official records at UK motor sports circuits on an 8MPH mobility scooter.
This year we are asking for your help and support in three ways:
1. We would love to see as many of you as possible on the evening, tickets are available at reception at a cost of £8 per person (£5 for pupils). Your daughter can purchase one on your behalf and the cost can be added to the school bill OR you can purchase a ticket on the door.
2. We would welcome donations of prizes for our raffle which will be drawn on the evening. Please send donations via your daughter to the L6th or tutor team.
3. There is also a JustGiving page available for those who are unable to attend the event but wish to make a contribution - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/fenwick2020
We look forward to seeing you on 3rd March and would really appreciate your support in helping us to raise as much as possible for our chosen charities!

ANOTHER FANTASTIC FUNDRAISER FOR 2020.
Challenge [email protected]
When I came up with the Idea of 'Challenge [email protected]' Everyone said: "not another one"!
I had absolutely no idea how it would go or how much it would raise, all I knew was, as this disease gets worse I need to push harder!
I had in the back of my mind that If I didn't raise £1,000 I would be disappointed but, I try not to put pressure on my helpers and collectors. We have collected pretty much all of the money that was pledged and we are not chasing the people who still owe.
I thanked all of the helpers, collectors, in fact, everyone involved in pushing us over the £30k on Facebook last week.
I now have another massive 'thank you' to put out there. 'Challenge [email protected]' has actually raised £2,566.
Well done everyone.....And thank you all.
2020 Milton Keynes MS Group cheque handover.
On the evening of Friday 24th January 2020, I had the pleasure of handing over our latest donation to our local MS Group in Milton Keynes. I was extremely proud to be able to hand over a cheque for £7,000 to the Chairman of the Group, Harry Robinson. The MK Group does amazing work for local MS sufferers. They use the money not just to help fund things like water aerobics sessions, but things people never think about, like repairs to a mobility scooter that people may not be able to afford which makes them housebound and to help in the garden. Such simple things, but they all make a difference and help someone with MS. Myself and my team are very proud to help, and the money has been adding up over the last 4 years. £16,000 initially to the Central MS Society to help with research. then over the last 3 years £18,000 to the MK Group and last year with the help of Steve Markham and the Seniors Section of the Rutland County Golf Club we donated just over £6,000 to the Peterborough MS Group.
MK MS GROUP DINNER.
On Friday 25th January 2019 we were honoured to be invited to the Milton Keynes MS Group annual dinner.
Whilst we were there we handed over a cheque for £7,000, this being the amount we collected over the 2018 season around the race circuits and via many more fundraising events.
