Support group for MS sufferers starts in Colburn

Colburn Leisure Centre.

The MS Society are funding a ‘strong and steady’ group at Colburn Leisure Centre.

The sessions will take place every other Wednesday starting on Wednesday, May 1. People should arrive at 10am for a 10.15am start.

The sessions include a 45-minute seated exercise group specialty for people with MS. There will be a chance to have a chat and a brew afterwards. This is provided by the leisure center with a 30p contribution requested for refreshments.

It isn’t a strong workout and everyone does what they can.

Organiser Annette Briggs said: “Anyone with MS is welcome to come.

“The exercise is important but the chat and laugh we can have after is great.”

Attendees are welcome to bring a carer.
