Prime Minister Theresa May has personally thanked volunteers for the MS Society – including Lillian Malcolm from Dundee – at a special reception at Downing Street.
The event celebrated the impact volunteers and many others have had on vital MS (multiple sclerosis) research and driving more, improved treatments for everyone, as well as the support they give to thousands of people living with MS.
Members of MS Society Scotland from Dundee, Angus, the Borders and Aberdeenshire attended.
Lillian, 67, who was diagnosed with MS in 1994, has been volunteering for the MS Society for 20 years.
She said: “MS runs in my family – my sister had it and my first cousin also lives with it as well as quite a few more distant relatives. I have a big extended family and I wouldn’t want any of them to get an incurable disease.”
Mrs May, said: “I was inspired to hear of Lillian’s incredible contribution to the MS Society in Dundee.”
