MS Society Lobby of Parliament 2000

On 8th March 2000, a thousand people with MS attended the biggest lobby of British Parliament of its kind in history.

We were protesting about the poor levels of care people with MS are subject to in the UK.

20 members of Jooly's Joint joined the protest. Most of us had never met other people with MS before.

Here are the pictures....
