In order to support efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to protect its members, Fibro Active will be providing all group meetings and Tai Chi programmes live on zoom. For more information on session dates in addition to obtaining zoom meeting credentials please contact us. Regrettably, all other events have had to be suspended until further notice.
What is Fibro Active?
Fibro Active is a Long Eaton based support group for people with Fibromyalgia (FM) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and their carers. It is a positive and inclusive group that focuses on healthy lifestyle, light exercise, support and sharing information as well as educating members about their condition and help them move forward with their acceptance and management of the illness.
Fibro Active have been nominated for the Local CO-OP Community Fund from October 27th 2019 to October 24th 2020.
Every time a CO-OP member shops at the CO-OP, 1% of what they spend on selected own-branded products or services can help community projects like ours. (Details)
