A Sheffield hospital worker is organising a host of activities to help people living with multiple sclerosis.

Debbie Beeley, a theatre sister at the Claremont Hospital in Sandygate, is to hold a swimming challenge, bake sale and ‘bushtucker trial’ in aid of the MS Society.

Plucky volunteers will be taking a dip in a bath of baked beans, having their legs waxed, and eating as many doughnuts as possible at The Bull’s Head pub in Ranmoor on October 4 from 6.30pm until midnight.

“We’ve got six willing victims who will be served five courses of insects,” said Debbie, of Bramley, Rotherham.

An auction is also being held at the Ranmoor pub, with prizes including football memorabilia, beauty treatments, ice hockey and rugby tickets and restaurant meals.

A cupcake sale and raffle will take place the previous night at the Claremont, and on October 6 players from Rotherham Clifton rugby club will attempt to swim 100 lengths in 100 minutes.

Mum-of-two Debbie, aged 50, said: “People have been very generous, giving us prizes for the auction.

“The MS Society is very important. There is some vital research going on.

“I’m hoping to raise about £2,300.”
