The West of England MS Therapy Centre (MSTC) based in Bradley Stoke that has been caring for people with multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions, their families and carers since 1985 has partnered up with Riverside Leisure Club in Little Stoke, thanks to one of their members, Giselle Rozzell.

Giselle was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis in November 2012. Since being diagnosed, Giselle has used the MS Therapy Centre and says:

“I do physio classes to help with balance. I also do weekly oxygen which is in a compression tank breathing pure oxygen through a face mask; this helps me enormously with fatigue, balance and posture. I wanted to include my love of water into my weekly routine, so I joined Riverside Leisure Club, who have been extremely supportive. I do a weekly aquafit class there and also enjoy swimming which is fantastic as it doesn’t put any pressure on my joints.”

Giselle saw an opportunity for the two centres to work together and introduced the MS Centre’s events and community officer Sarah Vincent to Ali Drury, Riverside’s centre manager. The pair have since been busy forming a mutually beneficial partnership with many fundraising events in the calendar.
