As reported in the local newspaper, the Redhill, Reigate and Horley Life:
The sudden announcement on the centre’s website from MS Respite and Care Services, which runs the Brambles, stated the move was being made “with great regret”.
The closure comes less than three years after the MS Society, which formerly ran the Brambles, withdrew its funding in June 2010. The centre was subsequently run by MS Respite and Care Services Limited, an associated company of St Cloud Care PLC.
As members of the Harrow MS Therapy Centre have used the respite care provided by Brambles in the past, the closure of the centre comes as a particularly sad loss to the local MS community.
