New epilepsy support group in west Cumbria

A new coffee and chat group to support people affected by epilepsy is being launched in Workington next month.

Organised by Epilepsy Action, the first drop-in event will be held on Wednesday, October 9, from 11am to 12.30pm, at the Carnegie cafe in Finkle Street.

The meetings will help people affected by epilepsy, including family, friends and carers.

They will provide an informal setting for people to chat and share experiences.

Paul Ferguson, local volunteer and group organiser, said: “This group is a fantastic chance for people affected by epilepsy in the area to talk about their different challenges and experiences.

“It’s a great opportunity to meet other people for a friendly chat. We will even pay for your first drink.”

After the first meeting, the new coffee and chat group will meet on the second Wednesday of each month.

For more information call 0113 210 8800 or email Cliff Challenger at cchallenger@epilepsy.org.uk.
