Charity darts match in memory of MS sufferer
A WOMAN whose husband suffered from multiple sclerosis for 18 years before he died in April is holding a charity event in his memory.
Sally Day, of Church Road in Stotfold, was the main carer of her husband, Kevin, before his condition deteriorated so much that he had to move into a nursing home five years ago.
“He didn’t know me or the children,” she explained. He was 44 when he died. He had two children with Sally – 17-year-old Rachel and 15-year-old Matthew.
Sally said she “wanted to do something in memory of him,” and so has organised a charity darts match at The Coach and Horses in Stotfold.
The event, which starts at 2pm on Sunday, December 4, is �4 to enter, including food, and the money raised will be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Trust.
Sally has actually worked as an office assistant for the trust, which is based at the Spirella Building on Bridge Road in Letchworth GC, for the past five years.
The charity provides information to anyone affected by multiple sclerosis, as well as education programmes for health professionals and funding for practical research. It also campaigns for specialist multiple sclerosis services.
