You’ll be glad to hear help is at hand for people who suffer from fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions.

Stevenage Fibromyalgia Support Group SGFMSG works with Fibromyalgia Action UK – a registered charity – in supporting and raising awareness of such conditions which can have a debilitating effect on people’s lives.

The group holds a number of fundraising events throughout the year to support its work.

It says it also provides a point of contact for those who wish to meet others in a friendly, non-judgemental atmosphere to share experiences and make new friends.

The group is holding its end of year party – one of its biggest annual events – on November 25.

There will be an evening of fun, friends, a dance, buffet and prize raffles and all proceeds will be supporting fundraising for fibromyalgia support.

Tickets are £25 per person and include entry, the dance, buffet and raffle draws.

The event runs from 7.30pm to midnight at Poplars Community Hall in Stevenage,

For tickets call 0844 8872 355 or 373/511 or email

SGFMSG’s coffee group meets every Wednesday between 1pm and 3pm at the coffee house in Stevenage Leisure Centre, next to the Gordon Craig Theatre.

Evening meetings are every second Wednesday of the month from 7pm to 9.30pm.
