Sir Vernon Ellis
(Chair, Stop MS Appeal) Former Chair, British Council
“An end to the devastating impact of MS is within our grasp. I am personally dedicated to this important cause and excited about the possibilities that lie ahead.
Our bold aim is to raise £100 million for medical research which will change the course of the disease, transforming the wellbeing, outlook and quality of life for everyone affected by MS.
But we need exceptional people like you, enlightened philanthropists, to pave the way and give the 2.3 million people with MS across the world the hope of a better future.
With your help we can make medical history. Together we can Stop MS.”
