Aberdeen & District Fibromyalgia Support Group

{phocagallery view=category|categoryid=6|imageid=45|displayname=0|displaydetail=0|displaydownload=0|displaybuttons=0|displaydescription=0|float=right|displayimgrating=0}The Aberdeen support group have sent in a report on their activities for the last year. Its really good to hear what groups are doing and success that they achieve. 

Us up in Aberdeen have had a busy year fundraising awareness and just plain old fun.

Our first big event of the year was we in May held a Jumble sale and awareness day in conjunction with Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.  Aberdeen’s Salvation Army kindly let us hire a room.  We were overwhelmed with donations and we raised over £200.  Thanks again to all those who helped organise everything, made donations and those who helped out on the day.

At our support group meeting in May we had guest speaker Helen Grant, who is an Energy Healer.  She came a long and explained what energy healing is and done some demonstrations, which got good feedback.  The best thing about Helen is she does not charge her clients but does expect donation which she donates to different charities.  As you may be aware that treatments like these can be expensive, so we were delighted to hear this.

In June several group members and some family members joined us, along with various other organisations to parade down Aberdeen’s main street.  There were over 3000 participants, a range of different groups, along with performers and musicians.  The aim of the parade was to show the work and diversity of the voluntary sector in Aberdeen.  The parade went well despite the threat of rain, everyone seem to enjoy it despite the struggle for us fibromyalgia sufferers.  A big Thank you  who came along and supported us and carried out flag and banners.  A local company, Appetite kindly sponsored us for this event.
