You are here: Schools ยป Awards Luncheon
Wednesday, November 22, 2017



Action MS really values the support of the schools which take part in our ‘Walk for MS’.  The money raised by these schools makes a real difference to people living with multiple sclerosis in Northern Ireland.

Action MS has been saying Thank You to schools in Northern Ireland for the last thirty seven years. It goes that extra mile by inviting young people who raise over £100 and schools which raise over a £1,000 to a special Thank You Awards Luncheon each January. Pupil get the chance to shine as they are welcomed on to the stage to collect their well deserved award presented by a VIP guest, John Daly radio and television producer and presenter and Action MS Patron. There are also special awards presented to the top fund raising schools. The children enjoy a delicious lunch followed by fun and games.

Photographers are on hand to capture the memories of the day. Our photo gallery displays some pictures from our January 2016 Luncheon. We also forward the photographs onto the press, so the pupils can enjoy the excitement of seeing their faces in the local paper!The Awards Luncheon really is a super day, which is thoroughly enjoyed by pupils, teachers and Action MS staff!  We are thrilled to have received very positive feedback from schools on our January 2016 Luncheon:

Could you please pass on to the Action MS team that Holywood Primary School had a great day today. We were delighted to be able to attend. It was lovely to hear about all the lives that will be touched in some way due to the valuable fundraising done by many schools around NI We were delighted to receive a number of awards. The children went back to school so proud of the achievement of Holywood Primary School. We all enjoyed our lunch as well as the entertaining games hosted by John Daly, Action MS Patron We have posted several snaps on the website to celebrate the day. Many thanks again to everyone involved.

This is just a quick e mail to thank the staff and volunteers of Action SM for the wonderful event on Wednesday. The children and adults in our group thoroughly enjoyed the occasion made all the better when we were awarded the shield for best Primary School collection in the Southern Region.
