BreatheEasy Eastbourne Support Group is run by people suffering with lung illnesses so the most important thing we do in terms of support is offer an understanding ear from someone that has actually been there.
It is our aim that no person should have to suffer alone. Therefore, we try our hardest to be accommodating and comforting, offering a safe place where they can express themselves without prejudice.
It doesn’t matter what condition you have, we aim to support everyone. The people we support have various conditions ranging from Asthma, COPD, Bronchoectasis, IPF, Carcinoma and Asbestosis. What matters is that we're connected and provide a supportive environment. In essence, we support each other through sharing experiences, knowledge and feeling.
BreatheEasy Eastbourne not only supports illness sufferers but also their family, carers and friends, so all are welcome.
What we do
We have monthly meetings at The Deerfold Centre in Eastbourne (please refer to 'Our Location' page for directions) where we meet and chat over a hot drink. We invite a monthly speaker to give us talks on a whole range of subjects.
We have a monthly Raffle to raise funds for the Group. We arrange outings for our members. We have various activity groups including a lively Social Club, Walking, Disabled Allotment and Singing.
We organise Fund Raising events at local summer shows and in local shopping centres and supermarkets.
We have a very lively Social Club which gives our members a chance to meet new people.
Our Walking Cuppa Club enables our members to walk at their own comfortable pace, or if you prefer, just meet up over a cuppa and chat.
We have a Green Gym Disabled Allotment in Gorringe Road, Eastbourne for our gardeners that enables them to grow flowers, vegetables and fruit or possibly learn new skills. The allotment has been designed to assist those with limited mobility.
Once a month at our monthly meetings we invite a Speaker to give a talk on various subjects.
We also have a Singing Group for lung health and breathing.
We have Fund Raising monthly Raffle with excellent prizes and all donations are welcome.
During the Summer we have Cream Tea which is very popular, and at Christmas time, we have an end of year Christmas Party.
We also enjoy outings by coach to various venues of interest.
