INFORMATION ABOUT THE MS SOCIETY
The MS Society and many volunteers have helped and supported hundreds of people affected by the illness on the Isle of Wight. The Multiple Sclerosis Society was first formed in London in 1953. In 1969, the Isle of Wight Group had its inaugural meeting.
In the years since then the group has moved from strength to strength, providing many services for people affected by the illness.The Charity is self funding and receives no financial assistance from NHS or the Isle of Wight Council.
The society depends on fundraising, donations and monies left in legacies in order to continue the current services provided and hopefully expand new and innovative services.The MS Society charity shop in Shanklin help as well the funds as well as allowing many people diagnosed with the condition another scorce of information.

The MS Centre and Charity Shop in Shanklin is so much more than just 'another' charity shop.
The Society are proud to offer this drop in centre for anyone with MS, their family and carers. The centre offers a vast source of valuable printed information along with being a warm and friendly place to find an understanding ear, if you need support.
The co-ordinating team would like to thank Lyn Fairman our Shop Manager and all the volunteers for helping make it so successful.
You know that a shop without stock isn't a shop.
Our shop in Shanklin offers a really great space to be a really great shop. If you have paid a visit you will appreciate the potential to raise funds for people with MS here on the Island.
To maximise this potential we need quality stock. Nearly every house on the Island could fill one or two black bags with valuable, but unwanted stuff. Look in cupboards, bottom of wardrobes, drawers, sheds and even under the bed and see how many of the following things you could put into a box or bag for the shop today.
Ladies and Men's Fashion Clothes
Ladies and Men's Work Clothes
Hats, Scarves & Gloves
Hand Bags & Purses
Kitchen Tools & Accessories
And lots and lots of other stuff.
