Staff at Ipes Guernsey took part in 'Wear Orange Wednesday'; a day set up by the Guernsey branch of the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society to raise awareness during their MS week.
Employees were encouraged to wear an orange item of clothing for a small donation to raise money and awareness of the local branch of the MS Society.
The MS Society funds research into beating the disease, and supporting MS sufferers and their carers by providing equipment, social events, and counselling.
MS is a neurological condition which affects approximately 150 people in the Bailiwick of Guernsey and about 100,000 people in the UK. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40 but it can affect older and younger people too. MS is a chronic, sometimes disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms may be mild such as numbness in the limbs or severe paralysis or loss of vision.
The staff donated money throughout the day, with Ipes matching the amount they donated. The total amount raised for the MS Society was £240.
