- For people like Karen, Angela, Martin and Bev whose lives were turned upside down by their MS diagnosis, they found a place for well-being and support here at the Merlin MS Centre. We make a real difference to them and their loved ones.
"Karen fought her illness with courage and dignity, determined she would live an independent life" Read Karen's Story
"I have been on a mini trampoline! I havent managed to have both feet off the floor at the same time on purpose for years!" Read Angela's Story
"We socialise so much more now and have so many friends here at the centre" Read Martin and Bev's Story
As Cornwall’s only MS therapy centre we want to continue to support those facing the challenge of living with an incurable or long-term neurological condition now and in the future.
But we need your help……After you have made provision for family and friends would you consider leaving a Gift in your Will to our charity?
Your Will is one of the most important documents you will write – it is a chance to provide for your loved ones and to make a difference to the causes you care about.
A gift in your Will to the Merlin MS Centre does not have to be large - as little as 1% of your estate would make a huge difference to the people we support.
Importantly, charitable donations in Wills are free from Inheritance Tax. Therefore, it can be financially beneficial to your loved ones for a part of your estate to be a charitable gift.

£30,000 fund a physiotherapist for a year
Our charity is a member of Leave a Gift to Cornwall – a group of Cornish charities working to raise awareness of pledging a gift in a will to your favourite cause. During 2015 we have partnered with McClure’s Solicitors – a national specialist in Will writing and other legal services, with a local team in Cornwall.
Shelly Pritchard and her team will offer free Will-writing appointments at a time and place to suit you. You don’t pay. The charities don’t pay. All they ask is a small donation to the Merlin MS Centre or one of the other member charities. You could also choose to leave a gift in your Will to a charity in the form of a legacy.
