Help us to raise funds from the comfort of your own home by recycling

Did you have a Spring clean this year? If not, now is the perfect time. Do you have unwanted items and don’t know what to do with them?  Recycling for Good Causes help us raise much needed funds by recycling donated items that are no longer of use.

How does it work?

By taking up a recycling project you can clear out your unwanted items and help raise funds for the Centre. It’s free, easy to do and there’s no long term commitment.  All it takes is a phone call (free of course). You’ll be sent a sack to fill with your unwanted items. Then phone again when you’re ready for collection. It’s that simple!

We can recycle all of the following, even damaged or broken:

  • Jewellery (any material, wearable or broken)
  • Watches
  • Used stamps
  • Gadgets (mobile phones, cameras, Satnavs, game consoles, tablets, MP3’s etc.)
  • Unwanted currencies (all those foreign coins and banknotes from your holidays, no matter how old)

You’ll be sent everything you need to start your free recycling project.

Vitamin D & COVID-19 – evidence to recommend supplements

Emma (MS nurse at Beds and Northants MSTC) has pointed MS National to this article in the British Medical Journal. There are now close to 30 or so studies demonstrating that having optimal blood levels of 25(OH)-vitamin D (75-150 nmol/L) reduces COVID-19 risks: reduced risk of infection; reduced risk of severe disease; reduced risk of dying.Many researchers now regard the evidence as ‘overwhelming’. There is little to be lost (vitamin D supplements are inexpensive and have low risk of toxicity) and a huge amount to gain by recommending a decent daily dose of vitamin D3 (say 1-2,000 IU for children and 4-5,000 IU for adults).https://t.co/B0iAo8A6fS?amp=1

Osteopathy

David Harsant started back at the centre on Thursday 5th.  He has is a manual therapist trained in Osteopathic technique.  He will be here every Thursday.  He has plenty of slots available to book, so let’s get him some appointments in.

Oxygen Sessions


As you know we are running at half capacity, so only 3 people per session. 

If you cannot make the session please give at least 24hrs notice, if possible.

Over the last few sessions people have cancelled on the mornings and one day I was left with just 1 person in the chamber. 

Our volunteers travel in from a distance and give up their time for free to run these sessions.  We are very short of volunteers and putting on extra sessions to accommodate demand. 

Please try your best to attend. 

Donations for cancelled sessions are welcomed in these difficult times where fundraising has been impossible.
