JKR may return to MS Society Scotland, says Society rep

The Scotsman is reporting today that a rep for MS Society Scotland believes JK Rowling may return as a patron if an upcoming vote makes the Society independent again:

A special general meeting will this weekend hear the results of a ballot, including a resolution proposing the society in Scotland becomes independent.

Bill Findlay, a former chairman of the MS Society Scotland, said he believed that if the charity could start again as an independent body, Rowling would return as patron.

Visitors may remember that JK Rowling announced in April she was stepping down from her position in the Society after she could not “in good conscience, continue to be the public face of a charity that is changing beyond recognition from the one with which I have been so proud to be associated.”
