Meetings // Meet-Up Manchester

Jo Goode (trustee) is holding the next informal meet-up on Saturday 20 May 2017 for Myositis UK members in the Manchester area.

Based on the success of similar meet-ups in London, this is the first to be organised in the north of the country. 

The afternoon is a chance for members to meet others affected by a form of Myositis and have a friendly chat over tea and cake. 

The event is free for Myositis UK members and their partners/carers but you must book a place in advance. This allows us to give accurate numbers to the caterers before the event. 

For more information and to book your place, please visit Jo's Meet-Up page.

This meet-up is supported by Myositis UK. If you would like to plan a meet-up in your area, please contact us for further details.

What you said: feedback from 2016 meet-ups 

"Yesterday's afternoon tea gave me a lot more insight into Dermatomyositis and just knowing that other people are experiencing the same symptoms and sharing my own really helped. Looking forward to the next one!"

"So nice to meet everyone today, found it extremely helpful to share and discuss symptoms. Looking forward to keeping in touch and hearing from you all and meeting up again. Have read Myositis News cover to cover. So inspirational to learn how many people out there raising money for Myositis UK. It will be my aim now to organise an event in my area to raise awareness and money for Myositis. Thank you again Jo for all your hard work in organising the meeting today. I hope to see you again in Oxford in July."

"Good to meet everyone at Saturday's Meetup. Thank you Jo for organising this again. I learn something new at each meet-up and enjoy the company. Look forward to the next one."

"I am so happy I came today, it was brilliant to meet you all and it makes me feel less alone, and so brilliant to exchange experiences and tips - from shampoos to antibodies! I feel very enthused to do all I can to contribute to anything that can help us all deal with this and promote research. Thank you so much Joanne for organising the meeting but also all you have obviously been doing for so long. Lots of love to you all and hope to see you again at the conference."
