Cheque presentation
The Gosport & Fareham Branch is one of a network of Branches throughout the United Kingdom who give practical help, professional information and support to anyone affected by MS.

We welcome anyone affected by MS to join us in any of our many activities.

We believe that it's important for people affected by MS to not become isolated, so we are really an MS Social Club as well as a mine of information. Check out our leaflet which summarises some of what's available and how to contact us.
