I'D LIKE to say a huge personal thank you to the many people in London who helped to make the recent Muscular Dystrophy Campaign collections at Tesco stores a huge success.
Almost 2,000 volunteers across the country gave their time on September 25 and 26 to help the charity collect an incredible £80,000 for the campaign, which is the Tesco Charity of the Year. It provides children with equipment to help them be independent. All the money raised will go to provide vital, specialist equipment for hundreds of children around the country whose lives have been devastated by muscle-wasting disease.
I have been president of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign for the past five years and am constantly grateful for the hard work that our many volunteers put in, and the generosity of the members of the public who support our cause.
On behalf of the 8,000 children across the UK affected by musclewasting disease, thank you.
SUE BARKER President of the Muscular
