Britain’s Multiple Sclerosis Society, of which JK Rowling is a patron, received a “significant” donation from the author of the best-selling “Harry Potter” book series.

The money will help fund a new £2.5 million research centre in Edinburgh, Scotland, that will further the charity’s work towards finding a cure for the disease.

Rowling’s mother Anne died from the neurological disease in 1990 aged 45, and around 85,000 people in the UK alone currently have the disabling condition.

Of her donation, Rowling said, “It means a great deal to me to be able to provide support for this much needed research centre. It is an extremely exciting step forward in the on-going battle to try to unlock the mysteries of MS and which will hopefully, one day, lead to a cure.”
