Grant Making Trusts & Major Donors
We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to the 38 grant-making Trusts and other organisations that gave a tremendous £193,944 in grants to the Chilterns MS Centre during 2017. This was an increase in the number of grant-makers supporting us and each of them helped us to make a positive difference to the lives of local people with MS.
We are pleased to receive grants for physiotherapists’ salaries and other specific services as well as towards our running costs. For example, £3,500 pays for 100 physiotherapy sessions to help people with MS maintain their mobility and independence, and £15,000 covers an average part-time salary for one of our therapists. Our oxygen therapy service is run by volunteers but it still costs us around £11,500 a year for oxygen supplies and equipment maintenance.
