A local support group has been set up in the East Marsh and will operate from the Hope Street Medical Centre, Grimsby. The support group has been set up for anyone affected by respiratory condition, either: patients, friends, family or carers.

The new Breathe Easy Support Group will be part of national network of support groups, and there are over 200 throughout the UK, which have 5,000 members between them. More than 20,000 people belong to the Breathe Easy network.

Breathe Easy Support Groups help to provide a network of friends, events and activities that support and empower people affected by lung disease.

Provide mutual support, inform and educate their members and also promote their group, the British Lung Foundation and respiratory disease.

Members can get involved in other aspects of the group, such as fundraising, organising social events and campaigning.

The first meeting of the Grimsby Breathe Easy Support will take place on Friday 31 October at 1.00 pm at Hope Street Medical Centre, DN32 7QL.

Margaret Tait from the British Lung Foundation will be the guest speaker. For more information, please telephone Rachel Branson (Group Secretary) on 01472 313537.
