Sir: Jo Brand does not have it quite right in saying Stuart Henry did not tell people he had multiple sclerosis (Diary, 2 December). In 1982, when his speech had become noticeably affected, Stuart did indeed make his illness known to Radio Luxembourg listeners, and the station launched an appeal for the work of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

With his colleague Tony Prince and friends from the music business, Stuart was instrumental in organising concerts in London to raise funds. These inspired many of his admirers to stage events to the benefit of the society.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Cardy

Chief Executive
