Princess Anne officially opens Bradley Stoke therapy centre
A BRADLEY Stoke centre set up to relieve the suffering of people with multiple sclerosis has been given a royal seal of approval.
The Princess Royal officially opened the West of England Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre during a trip to Bristol yesterday. The centre, which provides a range of therapies including oxygen treatment, physiotherapy and reflexology, opened to people with MS in February. Almost 50 per cent more people have started using the centre since it moved to its purpose-built home from a Nailsea trading estate, with 50 to 60 passing through the doors every day.
Princess Anne took a tour of the centre, looking inside the oxygen tank, talking with members of a social group at the centre and those taking part in physiotherapy.
Mike Gelder, chairman of the appeal to raise funds for the centre showed Princess Anne around before launching an £800,000 new fundraising campaign for the centre.
