I would like to invite people across the United Kingdom living with Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) to join The British Polio Fellowship. We are dedicated to helping people with PPS, making sure members are able to live as independently as possible and providing support, fellowship, friendship, and a caring ear or voice on the end of the phone.
One of the biggest events on our sporting and social calendar, The National Indoor Games, gets underway in Leicester from 16-18 March. Bringing members together from every part of the country for nine sporting events, the event has its origins in the original Stoke Mandeville Games and allows members to still compete, but also to socialise, meet up with old friends and share the latest tips and best practice on PPS management.
Joining one of our branches or groups is easy and who knows, you could be one of the competitors at the 2019 Games. Next year’s Games will be a milestone event, as the charity will be marking 80 years of service to members. With over 120,000 people living in the UK living with PPS, we know there are many thousands who would benefit from joining us. If you are one of them, contact us at www.britishpolio.org.uk or call 0800 043 1935 today.
Membership is for life, so if you have simply not been in touch for a while, give us a call or drop in and see us at a local Branch. Many lapsed members have done just that, meeting up with old friends, making new ones, and you could too.
National Chairman, The British Polio Fellowship
