Monthly Meet-ups
We usually meet the first Tuesday of every month at St Johns Church. Our 
meetings provide a chance for people with Chronic Fatigue and Pain conditions to get together. In our meetings we have time to chat, topics to discuss and have regular guest speakers. Refreshments are provided although we request a 50p donation to meet our costs.
One of the most important things about our meetings is that they provide a chance to meet others, help reduce isolation and loneliness and make some long lasting friendships and support networks.
All are welcome, those with Chronic Fatigue &/or Chronic Pain,
and their Carers, Family and Friends.
Join us for refreshments!

We hope to see you !!!

Coffee Mornings

Every so often we aim to meet at one anothers house for a coffee morning. This provides a chance to get together =, chat and have a cuppa. Starting as 10.30am till mid-day come along for some good old fashioned chatting. For details of our next coffee morning please click here or  contact us.

Home Visits
For those of you who are unable to leave your home for long periods of time so cannot attend our group meetings, then why not allow us to provide you with a friendly home visit.  For more information to organize a home visit and upcoming dates please visit our home visits page.

Socials

Going out and having some fun is important for anyone, especially those of us isolated because of an illness, that is why we like to have the odd social. Apart from our monthly meet up, we host social events throughout the year. From meals, quizzes, BBQs, to cinema outings and day trips.  More information will be given out at our monthly meetings, and on our upcoming events page.  


The Phil Richardson Memorial quiz
Twice a year we aim to hold a quiz. This is a fantastic social afternoon.  From April 2018 one of our quizzes is becoming an annual quiz in memory of Phil Richardson. Phil was the brother of one of our members Lisa. Lisa does so much for the group that our members have agreed to hold a quiz every year in his memory and to help raise money for CFS Unite but also charities that Lisa chooses in memory of her Brother. In April 2018 the quiz raised money for RNLI Aldeburgh as Phil was a big fan of the Lifeboats. See our upcoming events for more information.

Vals' Flowers of Hope
In memory of Val Sheppard
Every quarter we send flowers chosen by our members to a member who needs a extra boost or support. This was started in September 2016
in memory of one of our lovely members Val Sheppard who sadly passed away.

New for 2018 - CFS Unite Book Club
If you love books but have a Chronic Fatigue Condition than we are the group for you. We are a small group of book lovers who want to join a book club but cannot read as fast or as much as other people in normal book clubs. The CFS Unite book club is a book club who has the patience to work through the fatigue of reading and having to read the same page again because of brain fog, allowing you to take your time in reading a book and then discussing it either online or in person. At this time the group is on Facebook but if it becomes popular than we will look into an online forum.  Click Here to be taken to the Facebook page.  Contact Gemma for more information. 

Fundraising Activities 

One our objectives here at CFU, is to help charities that support Chronic Fatigue, thus we wish to support these charities as much as we can. Throughout the year we will hold fundraising activities. For more information please see our Fundraising Page.
