A LOOK BACK AT A BUSY YEAR
The group have had another busy year and we have welcomed many new members we have also had visits from some very interesting speakers.
Activities have included :-
From April through to June we participated in Professor Anthony Jones production of "Pain the Brain and a Little Bit of Magic" which took us to many venues across the North West, spreading knowledge of Fibromyalgia to medical professionals and members of the public.
Group members have had the opportunity to take part in various research programmes at Manchester University which are ongoing.
In April John McChrystal again completed a 300 mile cycle ride to raise funds for the group and we are again most grateful for his support.
We are delighted to confirm that Bioclinics have become the sponsors of the group and would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all their support thus far, and we look forward to continue working with them.
On 12th May International Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, we had an exhibition stand at Eccles Gateway Centre.
In July, we had an awareness stand and gave out literature at the Morrisons Supermarket in Eccles, and we thank them for giving us the opportunity to raise awareness amongst their customers.
For National Fibromyalgia Awareness week we had a stall at the Eccles Festival which was very successful. This has now become an annual event in the group's calendar.
In October we helped FMAUK at a Highways England event in Manchester, "Healthy Workplaces for All". We managed to raise awareness of Fibromyalgia and a number of group members took part in supporting the event.
Our next meeting is on Wednesday 14th December, Eccles Gateway, 1-3pm and we will be having a Christmas Buffet.
