Leap of Faith for the MS Centre

The West of England MS Therapy Centre (Reg. Charity No. 801155) is looking for willing volunteers to jump into Portishead Marina on September 14th, to be rescued by a Newfoundland Dog.

The event, now in its fourth year, will see 30 brave men, women and children (12+) taking the dive into the Marina, closely followed by one of these 150lb canine heroes to pull them to safety.

Newfoundland Dogs were bred as water rescue dogs, and are known as the St. Bernard’s of the sea: they have a special water resistant coat and webbed feet to help propel them through the water to rescue anybody in distress.

It costs just £10 to take part, and we ask you to raise £120 to help provide support for people with MS in the Greater Bristol area.  To find out more, please call Janet,  Jenny or Julia on 01454 201686 or email [email protected]
