Summer has arrived, and so have our park meet-ups!

Updated: Jun 24

A flyer for picnics in the park

The summer has finally arrived, and it is just in time for our next picnic meet-up! 

Join us for a warm and welcoming picnic where you can connect with others who understand the challenges of living with these conditions. It's a great opportunity to learn more about the support available and feel a part of our supportive community.

These picnics are designed for everyone with ME/CFS, fibromyalgia or long Covid in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire, and their carers are also warmly invited.

Bring your favourite food, drinks, and something comfortable to sit on, and get ready to enjoy a relaxing and fun social in the park.
