MORE than £2,000 has been raised to help Pembrokeshire's only dedicate Multiple Sclerosis (MS) centre.

Members of HOPE MS Centre in Neyland walked the equivalent of 10k between October and December last year.

The distance challenge was completed on parallel walking bars, which are used as part of treatment and rehabilitation in the centre's physiotherapy room.

Heather Lewis, Commonwealth power walker, who started the walk on October 1, returned to finish it and present medals and certificates to all members who participated.

A grand total of £2,605 was raised through individual sponsorship.

For 33 years the HOPE Centre has provided oxygen therapy for local MS sufferers.

Its physiotherapy department opened in 2000, and the centre also offers its services to people with other neurological conditions including Stroke and Parkinsons.

Centre manager Vanessa Walker said: "We are always at the end of the phone if we can help you, or maybe your organisation/club would like to book someone to give a talk about our centre.

"Look out for our fundraising events with Griffon Choir in St Marys, Tenby, on Tuesday, April 16, and our Midsummer Festival at St David's Cathedral on Friday, June 21, featuring Haverfordwest Male Voice Choir, Neyland Ladies Choir, Phillip Howells and Sarah Sharpe."
