Basepoint Swindon presented a cheque for £2,420 to its chosen charity, the Swindon Therapy Centre for Multiple Sclerosis on 17 October, raising the total donated over the last four years to over £40,000.
The funds were raised by the charity after holding a series of fundraisers throughout the summer, including a summer raffle, supermarket collection, as well as a trolley dash, with all proceeds match-funded by The ACT Foundation, owners of the Basepoint Business Centre network.
The MS Therapy Centres provide therapy and support to those affected by Multiple Sclerosis, a long term disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The charity’s Swindon centre receives around 120 people for therapies every week, and has, over the last year, provided 5,800 therapies to people with MS and other neurological conditions.
Basepoint Swindon manager Lyn Chapman said: “We are over the moon to present this cheque to the MS Therapy Centre. We have now officially raised more than £40,000, which marks a very special moment for us all.
"Next up is the charity’s Big Band concert on Saturday 23rd November, which I’m sure will be terrific fun and will hopefully raise more money for their brilliant cause.”
