A support group for ME sufferers in the West Suffolk and East Cambridgeshire region has been launched.
The group held its inaugural meeting at Nowton Hall to explore members’ needs and how they could be facilitated.
Organiser Marilyn Munn said: “Initially, it was decided that these could be met by mutual support and sharing of information, experience and skills and the pooling of resources.”
They will also make enquiries into pain clinics and programmes offered by other regional support groups.
She added: “We want to get on and improve our way of life and support each other.”
Fund-raising will be arranged through events and activities courtesy of Mrs Munn’s vintage clothes shop in Risby Barns.
