Robin Swann, the North Antrim Ulster Unionist Party Assembly Member and Chairman of the Stormont Committee for both Employment and Learning, has called on the constituency to help combat Multiple Sclerosis by getting behind a charity’s ‘Cake Break’
Assemblyman Swann, the UUP Chief Whip, issued his call after showing off his baking skills by helping to launch the MS Society’s charity campaign at Stormont.
Mr Swann said: “With so much pressure on the NHS and health budgets, it is easy to forget about the very valuable roles and contributions which charities like the MS Society fulfil in our communities.
“I call upon the entire constituency to get involved with this very worthy cause. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition which affects around 100,000 people in the UK.
“Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 to 40, but it can affect younger and older people too.
“Roughly three times as many women have MS as men, and has a worryingly high level of suffers in Northern Ireland,” said Assemblyman Swann.
