Team #gogirl Cannonball Run Mission August Updates
The excitement still continues with more support to help raise awareness about the #MSClearguide & raise funds for MS. Sadly, we are still awaiting Jasmine, that joined Team Go girl, to finalise the Hobbs & Palmer group accounts from June so we cannot share how much money has been raised to help the London MS unit. However, fingers crossed as we were told today this will be done by mid, August. In the mean time here is the film Kaz Aston made that has been very popular on social media.




Innovating for Patients

World MS Patient Summit 2015
I am so excited to have chaired and moderated the 2015 World Patient Summit in Rome. 

The 2015 Multiple Sclerosis (MS) World Patient Summit was excellent. The focus was all about MS patients and how to best link patient expertise to progress research, care and community services. The event was very modern and there was a real mix of all ages, discussing sustainable ways, to improve MS treatment, share information in modern ways, that reflect today’s society needs. The expert patient discussions were amazing and identified the key resources needed to champion best practice, implement new education solutions and even develop a common language at both local and international levels. Big thanks to everyone that helped support the event & shared #thinkMS. Check out the social media channels and facebook news for more information.

*Two Way Talking with MS Nurse Specialists*
It was a real honour to be invited to talk at a UK MS Nurse academy Conference in July 2013 on Two Way Talking. My role to share the latest research on helping patients to adhere in the best way possible to MS Treatments. It was great to talk for 45 minutes on this exciting topic and allow nurses to share ideas that they find really help people with MS. Also, to hear that nurses and therapists are sharing the MS Guide and find it really helpful in the UK. I look forward to helping at future MS Conferences and events again soon.

MS Trust is Santa Pod lead charity

The MS Trust was the lead charity at the 2010 FIA Main Event at Santa Pod held over the UK Spring Bank holiday.  

The MS Trust (while at Santa Pod) were able to provide information and support on site to anyone that asked and raised a grand total of £835.02 – £689.49 from the stand & £145.53 from Team Edge.

All the funds raised are to help support health care professionals working to promote people's lives with MS and the role of the MS Nurse.

There is still a shortfall of 150 MS specialist nurses in the  UK so the MS Trust will continue to campaign and support nurses in post by providing information & education.

The MS nurses are truly invaluable, as I have found over the last 16 years living with MS – so it's a worthwhile and invaluable service provided to people affected by MS. 

My role for this particular event was to help raise awareness about MS with Nitro FM among the large numbers of people attending, as well as to work with all of the drag racing teams that wanted to help too. Here is my My Full Santa Pod Charity Support July Report. 
Amazing raffle prizes were donated by top racing teams which helped the MS Trust raise awareness & support. There were also educational radio adverts by Alex Alam & Gary Page (listen to the MS Trust MS Advert).

Thanks to every one that helped with this fantastic event your help is so appreciated and does make a real difference to people with MS.

If you would like to make a donation please visit the Just Giving donation page for MS Trust  
Special Thanks also to:
  • Nitro FM & the Santa Pod Team

             Alex

Alex is getting ready to visit Santa pod for THE MAIN EVENT and will be supporting me with Nitro FM to promote Team Edge & The MS Trust.

 

The next racing event for Enigma was THE BIG BANG at Santa pod for the weekend of 23-25 April.

Further engine & performance work continues on Enigma by Adrenaline Race, so I hope to experience even faster speeds! will keep you posted on how we do. Sadly Enigma is experiencing some engine challenges at the present time and I'm not able to race for Team Edge due to the vehicle engine problems – but Gordon is racing The Edge for the Team Edge, so all the very best for the rest of the racing season.

I'm going to close my eyes take a deep breath and go for it and talk about it all on Nitro FM! TRANS WORLD SPORT TV FEATURE shown ON SKY STARTS Starts WEDS 31ST OF MARCH for 13 Shows, with info about MS & Drag Racing

Are you up for a bridge walk?
It’s early days yet, but would you be interested in a London bridge walk when the weather starts to improve?

I’m planning to take part in a walk that will see participants crossing 16 of London’s bridges, including all the capital’s central landmarks: London Bridge, the Millennium Bridge, Tower Bridge, Westminster Bridge and more.

We’re not planning to raise sponsorship for this event, and will instead be charging for tickets – with all proceeds going to support the MS Society. Everyone’s invited, the day’s going to fun, and I’d love to see you there. If you’d like to learn more, drop me a line.

Drag Racing

If you’d asked me back in 2007 whether I’d be taking part in the fastest motor sport on earth – and within only two years – I’d have given you a resounding “no”.

But after a fantastic first visit to Santa Pod raceway for the Easter Thunder Ball in 2009, I was so impressed – by the sport, the staff and the brilliant facilities for disabled people. That day was the spark that inspired me to get on the drag racing track to raise money for MS!

After my doctor gave me the go-ahead (you can read about my own MS here), FIA Race Director Darren Prentice organised a passenger thrill ride for me in Santa Pod’s two-seat dragster at the Summer Nationals. This amazing 9.8 litre car lets rip with a jaw-dropping 1000 horsepower!

   
The ride was breathtaking MY  Top driver Jon Webster and his team not only looked after me, but they kick-started a new passion. The Santa Pod kindness didn’t stop there. Nitro FM, Santa Pod’s radio station, gave me an opportunity to talk about Multiple Sclerosis and the work of the MS Trust, not to mention whetting my appetite for broadcasting – I ended up co-presenting when the European and UK finals came along.

Drag racing has been a wonderful way to raise both awareness and money for Multiple Sclerosis charities – and in the company of some of the most amazing people I’ve met. I’m looking forward to throwing lots more enthusiasm and time into the family atmosphere of drag racing, and I’d love it if you could help in some way. Take a look at my Justgiving page for ideas and more information.

Other charity work

 
In recent years, I’ve tried to raise awareness about (and fundraise for) many causes – including MS charities – in a range of different ways. I’ve taken part in walks, sailed yachts, played golf, learned about painting and ceramics, been on a hot air balloon ride, improved my cookery skills, gone on historical tours and talks and organised girls vs boys netball with the Royal Navy.
 
In short, if it’s fun and it helps get the message out there, then I’m up for it!


  
If you’ve got any great awareness-raising ideas, I’d love to hear about them. Why not drop me a line? I’ll share as many ideas as possible on this website.
