District Governor Visits Wolverhampton MS Therapy Centre

Centre Manager Paula Anderson, District 1210 Governor Doctor Mukunda Chidrawar and PP Peter Williams

The M.S.Therapy Centre was opened in 1984 as a Wolverhampton Rotary Club project in the year of Peter Williams’s Presidency and a recent Club visit to the Centre replaced our usual venue.

The Centre Staff of Paula Anderson, Lisa Sheward and Vicky Watkiss organised an excellent buffet lunch (including the option of purchasing alcohol for those Rotarians suffering from a drink-deprivation problem….!!) and the ratio of “the number of sandwiches consumed per Rotarian” produced an unsurprising figure……!!

Lunch was followed by  Centre Chairman Peter Williams welcoming District Governor Mukunda Chidrawar, Club President Charles Cox and our own Club Members.Following Peter’s talk on the history of the Centre, which was illustrated with a video of the early days, he spoke of the support from our Club which has continued over 39 years, there then was a congratulatory response from Mukunda.  Paula spoke of the progress of the Centre over the  years and the plans for the future of the many treatments and facilities which the Centre offers.

Peter also added that the Trustees at the Centre will be working closely with Rotary Club members at their fund raising events to support the essential services that the Centre provides.

All in all it was an excellent and informative visit and hopefully the continued involvement of our Rotary Club will aid the ongoing success of the Centre.
