Wotcher Harry Potter fans!
Jo Rowling has just donated £10m so the University of Edinburg could build a research clinic for multiple sclerosis. As you may know, her mother, Anne Rowling, died of multiple sclerosis at the age of 45. She’s naming the clinic after Anne Rowling. Let’s hear a piece of the article:
Ms Rowling said: “I cannot think of anything more important, or of more lasting value, than to help the university attract world-class minds in the field of neuroregeneration, to build on its long and illustrious history of medical research and, ultimately, to seek a cure for a very Scottish disease.”
She added: “I have just turned 45, the age at which my mother, Anne, died of complications related to her MS.
“I know that she would rather have had her name on this clinic than on any statue, flower garden or commemorative plaque, so this donation is on her behalf, too; and in gratitude for everything she gave me in her far-too-short life.”
I think it’s really great that’s she’s doing this. 🙂 You can view the full article here.
