Charity Begins at Home

This 'mum on the run for epilepsy' did not have far to run on this occasion. In fact, so short was the distance that I dressed up for the occasion rather than wear my running shoes. I was invited to speak at theRotary Wheel Musselburgh Rotary Club, our local rotary, about the work of the Trust. We were as close to MMT's own office as we have ever been on this occasion, meeting the rotary members at the Quay on Fisherrow Harbour in Musselburgh.

A huge thanks to rotary member Julie who set up my slides on her laptop before a delightful buffet supper in the restaurant. Afterwards we climbed to the lofty heights of the Penthouse where we attended to all matters 'rotary' including a talk by the guest speaker - me! It was a huge pleasure to share my story with the thirty or so rotary members who were enormously appreciative and very complimentary about my talk. The smallness of the world was felt when the brother of one of MMT's trustees came to say hello and another rotary member told me of her own brother, also profoundly damaged by epilepsy, now in his 50's and living in residential care in England.

The warmth of the welcome was heartfelt and the members desire to support our charity which is local to their club was made abundantly clear. Thank you everyone for your overwhelming support.  MMT will look forward to working with Musselburgh Rotary Club on fundraising matters in the future.

''Ann gave an eloquent, moving, and passionate Presentation that left us all in awe of her.''
