The Sussex MS Centre is a small, busy self-help charity based in Southwick. They have over 500 members from the local area who want to stay fit and active despite their diagnosis. The Centre offers drug free therapies and specialised exercise classes that help to slow the progression, manage symptoms and ward off secondary disabilities.

Jane Taylor, Development Manager at the Sussex MS Centre commented “The communal café is always busy and full of lively chatter and laughter with everyone happy to support each other with tips and tricks for symptom management, advice on day to day living as well as assistance with difficult crossword clues!”

Jane has been seeking funding for the purchase of a new therapists stool. As a Trust Port, the Port was pleased to support the centre and fund the cost of the stool and other treatment equipment.

Katie Orchin, Marketing & Communications Executive commented “The Sussex MS Centre is one of our closest charities and carries out incredible work in our community and surrounding areas. We are delighted to be able to support the charity and look forward to hearing about the many benefits the new equipment will provide for their members.”  

Jane added “We are extremely grateful to Shoreham Port for their generous donation. The stool will be used by our therapists to provide reflexology treatment for our members. The treatment can be hugely beneficial and really helps to relax and nurture our members and improve their general wellbeing.”
