MS Society appeal on BBC One

We’re excited to let you know that the MS Society will be featuring on BBC One later this month. We’ve secured a Lifeline TV Appeal which is a wonderful opportunity to raise vital funds, as well as awareness of what it’s like to live with multiple sclerosis and the incredible work we do.

The appeal will be on BBC One on Sunday 26 June. It will be repeated on BBC Two the following week and available on the BBC iPlayer for a month. There’s information about previous charity Lifeline appeals here on the BBC website.

Our Lifeline Appeal will focus on three areas of our work: our MS Helpline, our research and the invaluable support many of you provide through our local groups. We’re also delighted that the Michelin-starred chef, Tom Kerridge, will be presenting the appeal for us. Tom’s dad lived with MS, and sadly died when Tom was only 18 years old.

People with MS will feature in the appeal, sharing their stories of how they’ve been supported by the MS Society.

We’d love it if you could watch the appeal and let your friends and family know about it too! We’ll be sharing lots of information (including the timings of the broadcast) on our social media channels and on our website from Monday 20 June. Please look out for that, share with everyone you know and encourage people to support us.
