Challenge 35 at The Brightwell

2020 sees The West of England MS Therapy Centre celebrate their 35th anniversary and to mark the occasion they are encouraging local businesses and the community to take up ‘Challenge 35’. 

The idea is a simple one; teams of up to 10 people will each be given £35 by the charity, yes, you read that right, they are going to give you money.

Your team can be made up of anyone, whether from the office, the sports ground or some mates from the pub. The MS Therapy Centre is more than happy for all kinds of groups to give ‘Challenge 35’ a go.

Over 35 days, from 1st April 2020, each team will compete to raise the most amount of money with the winner being awarded the Brightwell Cup at a big birthday bash in May.  

The MS Therapy Centre first opened its doors in Nailsea but moved to their purpose built premises in Bradley Stoke in 2012 and over the past 35 years the charity has helped to improve the lives of over 3,500 people through the provision of more than 150,000 hours of therapy specifically tailored to benefit people living with long term neurological conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis. 

It’s a sad truth that neurological conditions are becoming more common with each local health authority having, on average, 59,000 patients. Research carried out by NHS England shows that those patients have the lowest quality of life of any long term health condition. 

It’s for this very reason the Centre is asking you to compete in ‘Challenge 35’ for the harder you strive, the more their members will continue to thrive.
