Happy New Year from everyone at the Chilterns MS Centre! We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break. See you in 2018! 🎉🎊🥂🎈
IMPORTANT: CENTRE CLOSED FOR A SECOND DAY ON TUESDAY 12th DECEMBER
The Centre is closed today, Monday 11th December, and will remain closed for a second day on Tuesday 12th December. It is currently not possible to reach the Centre by road and the local roads and the car park are treacherous. The current forecast shows the possibility of more snow with temperatures down to minus 6 degrees overnight. This means that there is no possibility of making the area safe and accessible before Wednesday at the earliest.
We will reassess the situation at noon tomorrow (Tuesday) and will contact you again with the latest information. In the meantime, please do not attempt to drive to the Centre.
We apologise for this inconvenience which is outside the Centre’s control.
'Its begining to look a lot like Christmas!' Take a look at the festive gifts that people have handmade for us to sell at the Centre! 🎄🎅🎁
What a star!

Read Trishna's Story:
I was diagnosed with MS in 2008, aged 28. Since then I’ve become an advocate for people with MS (which lead me to becoming one of the contestants in The People’s Strictly in 2015!). People just don’t understand what life with MS can be like on a day-to-day basis. That’s where the Centre comes in – it can be a lifeline for people like me. I always look forward to my visits: the physios, therapists, volunteers and staff all understand MS and I feel so welcome. When I’m undertaking my advocacy work, I often speak about the importance of therapy centres and why we need to continue supporting them. I hope you can join me in doing this.

I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last year. I knew little about MS at the time but when I discovered the Chilterns MS Centre, it changed everything. Every step of the way, I’ve received help and advice from the most amazing team. They make each treatment visit fun and informative. Just talking to other people who are going through a similar experience is a great help.
Despite joining less than a year ago Abi has become one of our most active members, taking every opportunity to support the MS Centre, so now it's your turn support Abi here: http://www.justgiving.com/abiparrywalkthemsmile

Read Amanda's Story:
I was diagnosed with MS two years ago. This was a shock but I received so much good advice from the Chilterns MS Centre. The place is full of really friendly staff and brilliant volunteers and is a very upbeat and cheery place to visit. I’ve made lots of friends who can relate to what I’m going through.
Amanda has also been highly involved in the Charity Partnership with Wycombe Wanderers Football Club. Pictured is her at a collection with their centre forward Paul Hayes.

Read Ally's Story:
I was diagnosed with MS in 2001 and have been attending the Chilterns MS Centre for 3 years.
The Centre has become my lifeblood; as well as having treatments and therapies, I volunteer in reception and fundraising because I enjoy helping and meeting people, I do yoga and am a member of the art group. I love to paint! I now have an enormous group of friends at the Centre and they lift my spirits every day.
John and his whole family have always been very supportive of the MS Centre, and once again John will be taking part in Walk the MS Mile in Beaconfield on the 16th September at 10:30
