A REDDITCH woman is taking part in the Great Birmingham Run to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Helen Tuite, who lives in Church Hill North, is taking part in run this Sunday, October 14.

She is raising funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, which provide practical help for those people living with MS and their families.

Helen's father, Jim, was diagnosed with the disease at just 40, and spent most of his life in a wheelchair.

She said: "I just want to do anything I can to help people like my dad who have day to day challenges to deal with, due to living with MS."

If anyone would like to sponsor Helen, they can go to justgiving.com/fundraising/helentuite-greatbhamrun2018 or 07941 416303.
