Live Nativity raises Funds for Hereford MS Centre

£500 was raised for the Hereford MS Therapy Centre from members of the Hereford congregation, singing carols and providing a Nativity display with real animals - a live Nativity.

Whilst Christmas shoppers in High Town Hereford came to buy gifts on the 12th December, they were reminded of the true gift of Christmas and given an opportunity to donate to a worthy cause.

The Centre offers support and therapy to Multiple Sclerosis sufferers in the local and surrounding areas. Their aim is to help people help themselves. As they receive no Government funding they rely on charitable contributions to raise the £30,000 a year it costs to keep the centre running.

Lisa Shaw, MS sufferer and Charity Centre Manager said “We are so grateful for the support given and the money raised.”

The Members in Hereford were able to provide such a unique Nativity courtesy of Wayne Gardner, who owns Newbridge Play Farm & Farm Park in the historic Pioneer town of Ledbury. The animals in the Nativity included goats and a donkey.
