The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Therapy Centre in Edinburgh has been adopted by Scottish Gas as its local charity partner.
Scottish Gas Business Services in Granton has pledged to help the MS Therapy Centre for at least the next 12 months through fundraising activities, providing IT support, refreshing the website and by staff volunteering at the Centre itself.
It is estimated that there are approximately 2300 people in The Lothians alone who live with Multiple Sclerosis. The MS Therapy Centre, which covers Edinburgh, Fife, The Lothians and The Borders, costs £180,000 to run per year with the majority of this money coming from fundraising and charitable donations.
Scottish Gas has already raised £180 through a raffle among its Granton HQ staff and is organising a programme of further fundraising events.
David Stewart, HR Manager at Scottish Gas said: “Scottish Gas is proud to support the MS Therapy Centre Lothian as its local charity partner.”
