Family Day Marks Society's 50th Aniversary

Around 300 Multiple Sclerosis patients, carers and friends enjoyed a day of fun and entertainment to mark the 50th anniversary of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

A full timetable of events ranged from organ playing to Morris dancing, which together with brilliant sunshine ensured a great day for all.

The event held in a marquee at Park House, Sandringham, also included a lunch, games and stalls.

Among the guests was Mike O'Donovan, the MS Society's chief executive, and Lady Joan Pound, the national vice-president, who organised the event with others.
Lady Joan praised the hardwork of the organisers, and also gave a special mention to the Air Training Cadets and members of the St John Ambulance, who she said "worked their socks off".

She believed Sunday's garden party was one of the society's best and it attracted guests from as far afield as Leeds and Barnet.

"It was a really good do. A true family day and everybody had a great time," said Lady Joan.
