We have members from all of Wiltshire and Swindon.
We have an informal meeting where everyone with an interest in Huntington's come together. Our happy crowd have all sorts of connections with Huntington's disease. From pre-symptomatic, symptomatic and their families and their carers. It is basically a tea and chat group. We are very lucky because our wonderful local adviser from the Huntington's Disease Association, Ann Pathmanaban, usually tries to come along.
We do find the tea and chat sessions very helpful. Quite often it is a small comment of how someone else deals with something that can almost be a light bulb moment!
The branch has over the years been able to offer some of our Huntington's disease family a small welfare grant to help them overcome some crisis in their family. Speak to Roy for further information.
