The Chiltern MS Centre are lucky to have the support of iLECSYS. Our members - local people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) - have benefited hugely form the partnership thanks to the breadth of support they've given.
Nathan has been a member since 2017; "The Centre has made such a positive impact in my day-to-day life by helping me learn how to walk again. There is also the social aspect, where I've met others with MS and we share knowledge and ideas together." We're proud to offer holistic services with support for physical and psychological symptoms, plus social opportunities and a community to be part of.
This past year has been a challenge for our members and their loved ones, but thanks to iLECSYS, all our beneficiaries have been supported throughout the pandemic. Thanks to their ongoing support, we will continue to be there for everyone who needs us.
Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway
Running between the village of Chinnor in Oxfordshire and the market town of Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire, the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway is one of the few preserved railways that is 100% volunteer operated.
We are a standard gauge railway operating both steam and vintage diesel train services to a standard timetable, as well as special events; some in connection with other local charities. We also offer a dining experience in the atmosphere of our mid-20th century coaches.
On 15th August 2022 our line will be 150 years old.
We are most grateful to support given to us by iLECSYS, enabling our heritage to be preserved for the enjoyment of all and for us to educate the young in their inherited history and gain old skills.
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
The kind monthly donations from iLECSYS enables Hearing Dogs for Deaf People to continue supporting our severely and profoundly deaf recipients. The ongoing support that we are therefore able to provide, helps our recipients to leave loneliness behind and reconnect with life.
We now support over 980 hearing partnerships throughout the UK and the past year has highlighted new challenges for deaf people to overcome; trying to understand people that are talking to them from a distance, struggling to stay connected with loved ones via technology (not all of which are deaf friendly) and being unable to lip read with people wearing face masks.
Thanks to the generosity of organisations such as iLECSYS, our team have been able to adapt and respond to all the challenges and ensure that our recipients are all safe and well.
