A CAKE break organised to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis (MS) has raised more than £400.
The event, held at the Dog and Partridge, in Marchington, raised £350 throughout the day for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, with an extra £50 through online donations.
Cheryl King, who organised the event after she found out she suffered from the condition two years ago, said the cake break was really well supported by residents and members of the MS Society.
She told the Advertiser: “There was a really good turnout from members of the community and society, which is based in Burton.
“It went brilliantly well and Paul Needham, landlord of the Dog and Partridge, was brilliant, I cannot fault him.
“I would like to say a massive thank you to Paul for everything, he was even running a raffle behind the bar for us.”
Cake Breaks are being held throughout the country this month to raise awareness of the condition while collecting funds for the charity.
The 45-year-old added: “I was a bit surprised at the time when I was diagnosed but I have got my head around it now.
“Since I was diagnosed I am now trying to raise as much money and awareness of the condition as I can and May is the society’s national awareness month.
“I can’t work now due to the symptoms but I try to do as much as I can.
“I also organise a pilates class for MS sufferers as the movement helps ease the symptoms.”
