MS Therapy: Partner Charity of 2013
The MS North West Therapy Centre was the partner charity of Sligo Rovers in 2013 with €4,235 directly raised from club events.
The centre, located in Ballytivnan, helps enrich the lives of individuals with Multiple Sclerosis and provides essential services and support to patients and their families.
The Bit o' Red supported the MS Therapy Fundraising Cycle which took place last summer.
Four bucket collections were held in The Showgrounds over the course of the season with Sligo Rovers supporters generously supporting the Centre.
This included during the Champions League match with Molde in July.
Sligo Rovers players were also part of the modelling line-up for the MS Therapy/Sligo Rovers Fashion show in the Clarion Hotel.
A spokesman for the centre said: "The MS North West Therapy centre would like to thank most sincerely Sligo Rovers for choosing us as their charity for the last year.
"A big thank you to all the supporters who gave so generously to our collections and Robbie Fitzpatrick and Paul Hynes for their help during the year.
"We were so grateful to receive such support. With Sligo Rovers doing so well we knew it would be a huge lift to us. It proved to be with over €4,200 raised directly from the charity partnership and the publicity that the club generates linked to the Therapy Centre was also extremely beneficial.
"We wish Sligo Rovers the very best for the new season."
Rovers chairman Tony Quinn said: "It was a privilege for the club to be associated with such a dedicated and essential charity in the heart of our community.
"We were delighted to support the fundraising events, in particular the fashion show which was a brilliant night in the Clarion Hotel assisted by our players and partly-organised by members of the management committee.
"The club's supporters were extremely generous during our match-day support of MS Therapy and if our association highlighted their terrific work, it is something we take great pride from."
