Everything we do is ‘By MSers, for MSers’, because involving the MS community ensures we stay relevant and increases impact. Our work wouldn’t be possible without the efforts of Shift.ms volunteers, The Energy ⚡️
There’s no denying that it’s been a difficult year, but The Energy well and truly stood up to the plate, getting stuck in to reach more MSers and contribute more time than ever before 👏 🙌
We have had a bumper year of content creation by MSers, for MSers. Some of our highlights include:-
Despite the coronavirus pandemic’s significant effect on sponsored challenge events, our wonderful community still managed to raise over £8000 ($11,000) through fundraising challenges.
We’re grateful for every single pound raised by the community, which makes a huge difference to our work. Thanks especially to Lucy Riall, Isabel Riall, Poppy Riall, Dominic Shadbolt, Sheena Watts, Mark Webb, Fiona Brown and Emily Thompson for their excellent efforts in contributing to this huge amount of income.
We launched our first regular giving campaign where volunteers shared their stories of how Shift.ms has impacted their lives and encourage the community to support us to help ensure we are always here for those who need us.
“Volunteering for Shift.ms has given me a sense of taking action against my MS, and channelling it into something good.”- Helen, Reward & Recognition Volunteer
Meeting up with others via online platforms has helped me feel much more part of a community, rather than an individual trying to volunteer all alone without support”- Ali, Buddy
I lost a lot of confidence in myself after my diagnosis but talking to other people at various stages of MS just keeps reminding me not to let MS stop me from living my life fully.”
- Bhagirathi, Buddy
