Most meetings are held on the last Saturday of each month and begin at 10.30am for an 11am start. For 17 years, we have provided support to all the local patients, families and friends who attend. We are a thriving group, and offer lots of support, advice and, above all, friendship and humour.
We are using the Fazakerley Memorial Hall, Lower Lane, L9 7AE. This is quite close to the Walton centre but nearer to the main hospital entrance and ambulance station on Lower Lane.
All meetings are held on the last Saturday of every month, except December when we meet up for a Christmas meal out.
As we now have to pay to use our new venue we have found it neccessary to introduce a small charge to come to the meeting, but we hold a well stocked raffle each month. One of our members, who is a patient, makes sure we are all well fed with a sumptuous buffet at her own cost - she gives this willingly as her contribution.
Our members give tirelessly to help their fellow patients and carers. We have a system of 'phone a friend' to make sure that all members receive a regular call just to say "Hi, are you OK?". A monthly newsletter is produced, and any one who needs cheering up, has been unwell or is celebrating will be mentioned.
Our group motto is 'You'll Never be Alone' as we realised at our launch that many patients and carers were just that - alone with their condition and no-one to talk to.
Contact the group co-ordinator Tony at email@example.com or on 07535526658.
We have a website for more information.
The group also have a Facebook page where you can keep up to date with their news.
