St Patrick’s pupils put best feet forward for Action MS walk

ACTION MS School’s Project Officer Ciara Callan, will be visiting St Patrick’s Primary School, The Loup today (Thursday, October 25), for a special awards presentation following the pupil’s tremendous efforts on their recent Walk for MS.

Some 160 pupils joined the Walk for MS team at Drum Manor Forest Park on September 25.

The pupils raised a fantastic total of £2,215.

Ciara Callan sai thanks to the generosity and support of schools like St Patrick’s Primary School 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 Patrick’s Primary School really enjoyed their morning’s walk and we are very grateful for their generous support,” she said.

And she added: “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.”

Action MS invites anyone who is living with MS, their families or carers to contact Patricia Webber, who would be delighted to help - call 028) 907 907 07 or visit the Action MS website, for more information.
