Hello! #TeamAbbotts ran the Stafford Half Marathon in aid of Headway Northstaffs and the Multiple Sclerosis North Staffs on 15th April 2018
TeamAbbots say “Sharon Mason nee Abbotts passed away from MS almost 2 years ago.
We miss her everyday but was the bravest person we know. “
An outstanding fundraising effort by Team Abbotts :)
Thank You TeamAbbotts for all your efforts !!!
Clare Abbott of Team Abbotts writes.
So it was hard going at times, with various injuries making themselves known, however Team Abbotts made it round the Stafford Half Marathon, pushing Gilly Abbotts around as much of the course as possible. It's our pleasure to have raised £3,500 for MS Society North Staffordshire -
We hope this really makes a difference to your members.
Thanks for all your support.

MS SOCIETY – CITIZEN’S ADVICE BUREAU
We are pleased to announce, that due to a legacy kindly donated to us we have negotiated to retain the services of the Citizen’s Advice Bureau for you, our members, and anyone affected by MS.
Ass from 1st October, 2011 we will have access to a CAB Advisor for one day per week, retained solely for the benefit of people affected by MS. The Advisor will be able to offer advice on DLA applications, benefits,
legal advice plus help on any other issues unrelated to MS.
This service will enable you to access advice much quicker than the normal queuing system offered to the public.
Anyone wishing to seek advice from the Bureau should make initial contact with the us and we will then make contact with the Bureau on your behalf who will, in turn, contact you with an appointment.
Appointments will be held at the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, Cheapside, Hanley,
We do hope that you will fully utilise this new service from MS North Staffordshire and we look forward to working with the Citizen’s Advice Bureau for everyone’s benefit affected by MS.
