Interest in arthritis group
An arthritis awareness coffee morning at Berwick Community Trust hoped that it could rekindle an arthritis group, as the local one stopped some time ago.
Arthritis Care, now Versus Arthritis, attended the coffee morning, as well as Jess Pape, who has recently started up a support group in Alnwick.
Jess was able to give the Trust some great tips and advice on starting up a group and Versus Arthritis has offered support in setting up a group and getting information on subjects of interest.
Four local people who were interested in being involved in a group have expressed their interest with Berwick Community Trust,which is looking to move this forward starting a regular group of peer support for arthritis sufferers in our area. If you are interested in joining, contact the Trust for more information.
The next event on November 2, from 10am to noon, is on men’s health.
