Collections a huge success

I'd like to say a huge personal thank you to the many people in Northern Ireland who helped to make the recent Muscular Dystrophy Campaign collections at Tesco stores a huge success.

Almost 2,000 volunteers across the country gave their time on September 25 and 26 to help the charity collect £80,000 for our Tesco Charity of the Year giving children equipment to be independent campaign.

I have been president of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign for the past five years and I'm constantly grateful for the hard work that our many volunteers put in, and the generosity of the members of the public who support our cause.

On behalf of the 8,000 children across the UK affected by muscle-wasting disease, thank you.

SUE BARKER OBE

President, Muscular Dystrophy Campaign
