There was plenty of time at the 4th Birthday Party celebrations to talk to NHS staff. As well as hearing about general issues concerning fibromyalgia and associated conditions, they were able to hear personal stories. Here one of the guests is speaking to the team.
The NHS attended the Birthday celebration event in July and it was an opportunity to find out more about how people experience the NHS. Jackie spoke to them about Essential Tremor.
The Gary Mason Drummers ran a session at the 4th Birthday Party event. Jacqui and Jackie were first up to volunteer to take part.
Jacqui is looking into the possibility of the Pop-in Club running a shop for bags and fashion items including clothes. It is a long term ambition but would offer the club the chance to be more visible and also to generate funds to contribute to its work.
If anyone has any thoughts, please get in touch with us.

“It’s hard to imagine that we have been going four years now”, said Jacqui Shields who set up the club.
The NHS attended the event and talked to people about the condition and their experiences of health treatment.
Jackie Farrell from from Essential Tremor was also at the event and gave a short presentation on the condition.
Lots of pictures were taken and we’ll publish them as they are sent to us.
