Comedian and MS Society Ambassador Ivo Graham will be hosting the MS Society Volunteer Impact Awards and would like to call on the people of the East Midlands to nominate their family and friends for an award. Nominations close in just over a week.

Joe explains:

“I’m delighted to be helping the MS Society celebrate the amazing volunteers who help the charity support people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) across the UK. We’re looking for people in the East Midlands to nominate volunteers who have made an impact on people affected by MS. Whether that’s through outstanding support, adventurous fundraising or tackling injustice on behalf of the whole MS community – we want to hear from you! 

More than 130,000 people live with MS in the UK and symptoms are different for everyone. MS can affect how a person moves, thinks and feels. Without volunteers’ time and energy, it would be impossible for the MS Society to deliver the services and support that it does. 

 “I became an MS Society Ambassador in 2022 but have been a lifelong supporter of the charity as my mum lives with MS. And I’m thrilled to say I’ll be hosting the virtual Volunteer Impact Awards ceremony on Thursday 30 November at 7pm to shine a light on the inspiring people who have done incredible things to support the MS community.”

If readers know a volunteer in the East Midlands who they’d like to see get one of six special awards, please visit Nominations close on Saturday 30 September.
