We are delighted to announce that this year’s chosen charities for fundraising are The British Heart Foundation and The Merlin Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre Cornwall.
The vision of The British Heart Foundation is a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases. The donations they receive go to researching cures and treatments for heart diseases, stroke, vascular dementia and diabetes – www.bhf.org.uk
The Merlin MS Centre is the only purpose built facility in Cornwall that provides a comprehensive range of subsidised and affordable therapies for those whose lives are affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The services the charity provides are also available to those with other neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, Stroke, ME Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). For many, the centre provides a much needed safe haven which includes day respite, counselling, an assisted transport service and social activities – www.merlinmscentre.org.uk
All money raised throughout the year will be split evenly between these two worthy charities and their important causes.
