Local shopping Plymstock shopping centre, The Broadway, and Property Maintenance South West (PMSW) were delighted to present a cheque for £1,000 to the Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS Society) recently.

The generous donation was raised through support from local market stall holders who were trading on the day of the annual Christmas Lights Switch On and from sponsorship of The Broadway Christmas Tree from local businesses, which was organised by Paul Sheldon from PMSW.

Paul said: “I’m delighted that we have raised this amount for such a good charity.”

The Broadway Centre Manager Mark Berry said “We are delighted to be able to donate this cheque as a result of the tremendous effort with the local market stalls all donating on the night and Paul arranging sponsorship from local businesses to be placed around the Christmas Tree.”

Helen Cherry, MS Society Group Co-ordinator for the Plymouth and Tamar Valley area added: “The generous donation from The Broadway and Property Maintenance South West will make a massive difference to local people living with MS. As a Society we arrange a number of monthly socials and events which are either free or subsidised to enable individuals living with MS and their families to enjoy throughout the year. It is because of the support of businesses like Paul’s and The Broadway that we can continue to reach more people in our area.”

The Broadway’s annual Christmas Lights Switch On, this year held in association with Radio Plymouth, welcomed nearly 19,000 people to the local shopping centre on Wednesday 21st November.
