Breathe Easy Basingstoke

A new local support group based in Chineham, for people with lung conditions in and around Basingstoke.

If you or a family member fight for breath as a result of conditions such as COPD, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, fibrosing alveolitis, IPF or asthma, then get in touch. There are over 2,000 people within the Borough who suffer from the various conditions and they are encouraged to make contact.

You are welcome to come along and join our meeting as anyone may attend; carers, friends or family and we have guest speakers at each meeting including respiratory experts who provide expert advice. Refreshments are available and meetings are on the last Tuesday of each month at 2 pm in The Shaftesbury Room, Christ Church, Reading Road, Chineham, Basingstoke, RG24 8LT. This is a great opportunity to network in a social atmosphere and share information, issues, experiences and requirements.

Breathe Easy Basingstoke is just one of over 200 groups across the country and part of the British Lung Foundation’s support network – www.blf.org.uk/breath-easy

Breathe Easy also really welcomes new volunteers to assist and promote the group alongside fundraising and for more information, please call Judith on 0773 0366 411 or email beb_blf@hotmail.co.uk

We are also currently in need of some funding to ensure that the group can continue locally as we are a self sufficient group so any individuals or organisations who may be able to help would be really appreciated. Also donation of refreshments for the meetings such as Tea, Coffee, Milk and biscuits would ease funds.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
