As this is the year of the bear at MS-UK, I visited the lovely ladies of the Great Bromley WI knit and natter group to have a talk about creating some bespoke outfits for Myles, our lovable mascot.
Mary at the WI group, who I have been chatting to for some time now, invited me to stop by for a cuppa (and cake of course!) and explain all about MS-UK and the work we do supporting anyone affected by multiple sclerosis.
The knit and natter group were keen to learn about our Helpline and our centre in Essex, Josephs Court. Of course I left them a stack of New Pathways magazines too, as Myles is the cover star this month!
I have to say I got a very warm welcome, and lots of ideas were flying around…from ‘running Myles’ who may sport some purple sweat bands, to ‘swimming Myles’ who definitely needs some trunks!
Now, I am on a mission to get some purple wool donated to the Great Bromley WI group so they can get started! Then I will be dressing up our mini Myles bears with all of his new outfits, and selling these amazing creations in the MS-UK online shop. All of the profits will come to MS-UK, and help us continue our vital work.
I can’t wait to see what outfits the group comes up with, and I will keep you posted on this blog!
