Shrewsbury and District Breathing Club

Description:

Shrewsbury and District Breathing Club started in 1991 for people with chronic disabling respiratory disease, and their carers.

It offers social support, education and companionship on a regular basis.

There are over 80 members and as well as regular meetings and outings, the club offers holidays in a caravan specially adapted for the disabled at Clarach Bay near Aberystwyth and also organise two hotel holidays each year both of which are subsidised.

There is a joining fee of £10 for life membership.

Throughout the year the Breathing Club has outings to various places around the Midlands.

A coach is provided for the majority of these trips, but transport can be arranged when no coach is available. There is always at least two medical staff on each of these trips, one of which will be the Specialist Chest Consultant Physician.

Most of the meetings are subsidised, as are the holidays.

Equipment such as medication, wheelchairs and oxygen is provided to enable members to attend meetings.
