History of the Bailiwick of Guernsey Branch of the Multiple Sclerosis Society

The first meeting of the Guernsey Branch of the Society was in October 1976, with eight people present. Membership now numbers about 100.
.
Our patron is Colin Fallaize MBE.
In 40+ years, the Bailiwick branch which covers the Channel Islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm, has gone from strength to strength but relies on a dedicated committee and tremendous support from the community.

There has been a long and proud history of sporting challenges undertaken in support of the branch. A full history of these events can be viewed here.  Rowing in particular has featured strongly and the Fitness factory and Guernsey rowers have  raised hundreds of thousands of pounds with various high profile challenges.Perhaps the most notable amomgst the successes was the London to Paris row. In 2004, a team of 50 Guernsey residents took part in one of the most successful one off fund raising events the Channel Islands have ever seen.  The team of 17 rowers and 35 support crew broke the world record for rowing from London to Paris and raised sufficient money to fund an MS nurse for the Island for five years.  The MS nurse, along with the MS physio provided by the States, is helping to transform the support available for people affected by MS in the Bailiwick. The world record still stands today.

On Friday 27th June 2008, the Guernsey Branch of the MS Society, together with a team from Credit-Suisse organised an attempt to break the world record for the longest human and teddy bear chain.

Teddy chain world record
Guernsey's beautiful Pembroke beach was home to the attempt when 1,714 people with teddy bears joined hands and formed a chain which stretched right around the bay.. The new record smashed the old figure of 631 people. The event raised £5,000 on the day and with fantastic generosity, Credit-Suisse matched this pound for pound.  Donations continued to arrive and the total sum raised was just over £14,000.


Our aim is to help local people with MS and to provide support for carers in all ways possible, including providing equipment, social events, counseling, or sometimes just by providing a listening ear.


The Guernsey branch is a founder member of the Guernsey Disability Alliance, an organisation committed to improving the lives of people with disabilities in Guernsey.
