Trish MS Research Award 2021

HUGE congratulations to the very special people who were awarded the 2021 Trish MS Research Award.

In 1999 Roy and Carol Langsford had a dream to save others from all Trish was enduring and they were joined by four very special people who have significantly contributed to the Trish MS Research Foundation for the entire time since 1999, before the Foundation was born.

Congratulations to the winners of the Trish MS Research Award for 2021:

Professor John Pollard AO – who has been a valued member of our honorary Scientific Research Committee for that entire time

Professor Peter Russell – who has also been a valued member of our honorary Scientific Research Committee for that entire time – and as well, was an inaugural Board Member, making a significant contribution

Gail Russell – who was an inaugural Board Member – and made a very valued contribution to the establishment and success of the Trish Foundation

Wendy Dodd – an inaugural and continuing Board Member who has been there with us, significantly contributing for that entire time – and with special mention of Wendy’s late husband David’s brilliant contribution as an inaugural Board member.

 

Sincere gratitude

The Trish MS Research Foundation has been blessed to receive exceptionally generous, very valued, significant support from The Lady Fairfax Charitable Trust, The Woodend Foundation, Future Generation Investment Company and the CommBank Staff Foundation.

Our team of volunteers is incredibly grateful to the Trustees of The Lady Fairfax Charitable Trust, the Directors of The Woodend Foundation, Michael Phillips, Phillips Family Office for Future Generation Investment Company’s immensely generous support and Tracey Stormon who nominated the Foundation for CommBank Staff Foundation’s great generosity.

The Foundation’s funds for MS Research Projects have been given a substantial boost.  THANK YOU.

Congratulations Jeremy Wright AM

HUGE congratulations to Trish MS Research Foundation Board member Jeremy Wright for being awarded an AM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Jack Vidgen honours the Foundation

Jack Vidgen, who was the Feature Performer at the Trish Foundation’s Ball in 2012, is competing on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!  Jack has bestowed a huge honour on the Trish MS Research Foundation, nominating the Foundation as his chosen charity.

“It’s really important to me because my Dad was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when I was about 7 years old and it changed my life and it changed my Dad’s life and our family’s life.  So it is special to do something like this,” said Jack.

Our heartfelt gratitude to Jack for honouring the Trish Foundation in this very special way.
