Charity Fiesta at Aberavon Shopping Centre

In spite of the wet and windy weather, lots of people came, read our information and took away leaflets. We are raising awareness of Sleep Apnoea, a little known condition which causes disturbed sleep. People with this condition often snore then actually stop breathing, which wakes them up. This goes on all night and so the person is always tired and prone to falling asleep in the daytime - very dangerous if driving or using machinery. It can be treated - so, if this is you, go to your doctor and ask for help. There is no need to put up with this.

Sugar flowers and butterflies

Merle had us all fascinated as she made sugar flowers and butterflies as she sat and chatted about her hobby of cake decorating. It looked so simple as she rolled, cut and shaped the pieces of sugar icing, stuck them together with vodka, a quick tweak, and a rose, carnation or butterfly was made. They looked good enough for a buttonhole - far too good to eat.

Craft Fair in St David's Church

We had a lovely day at the Craft and Charity Fair in Neath yesterday, meeting up with old friends representing other charities.
Lots of people asked about various aspects of lung conditions and hopefully we have some new Breathe easy members.
We always welcome new members to our group. Support from others with the same condition is always a good thing to have.
