Action MS Patrons

“When I was a schoolteacher it was always great fun to get out and about with pupils. This usually happened in the summer and the buzz and excitement gave us all a lift. Now as Action MS Patron I find those memories come flooding back when I meet hundreds of children who have taken part in the “Walk for MS” events across the region. - John Daly, Action MS Patron
