The Solent MS Therapy Centre is entirely self-funding and does not receive any financial help from the NHS or Local Government. We are reliant on donations, including those for therapies received, to continue providing these important services. It costs £170,000 a year to keep the Centre running – so it’s clear that we need your continuing generous support!
We run various events throughout the year and are always looking for new fundraising ideas.
If you’d like to get involved, please get in touch!
Make a Donation
We are always very grateful if you are able to make a monetary donation and this can be done via our JustGiving page or Paypal, as a one off or monthly donation, or by card, cash or cheque in the Centre.
Please make sure you sign up to Gift Aid when you donate if you are a UK taxpayer.
Fundraise for the Centre
You can set up your own fundraising page through JustGiving, this could be a sponsored event, to celebrate an occasion or in memory of someone special.
You can then share the link to your page via email and social media and we will promote it on our social media pages and in the Centre.
Contribute Items to the Centre
This is a very direct way to help by contributing items that we need for the day to day running of the Centre.
For example: tea and coffee, tissues and wet wipes, toilet roll and kitchen roll, antibacterial wipes, hand sanitiser, hand soap and washing up liquid.
We also welcome donations of new or good condition items that we can sell at the Centre or through our eBay charity shop.
Donate Your Time
We have regular local store collections if you are able to contribute an hour or two to collect funds for the Centre.
We have fundraisers taking part in events throughout the year such as the Great South Run and Colour Rush and they always appreciate being cheered on.
If you can commit to a half or whole day on a weekly basis, please get in touch to find out more about training to be a Volunteer Chamber Operator.
If you can’t commit to a regular time then we would very much appreciate your help as a Casual Volunteer, which could be anything from counting up collection pots to wiping tables and making tea and coffee for our Members, to listing donated items for sale on our eBay charity shop.
