The Bury and Bolton ME/CFS and FM Support Group is aimed at supporting ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia sufferers and their carers.
Our main meetings are either a social, or have a guest speaker. Speakers talk to us about various topics, e.g. nutrition, equipment to help around the home, reflexology, etc. After the talk, there is usually time for members to chat.

Please help us at the end, by putting away your own chair if you are able. Carers are more than welcome to join us. The entrance fee is £1 (to pay for refreshments, etc) and carers are free. Refreshments are provided, with gluten/dairy free, etc catered for as well.
