Vote for us!

We didn't stand in the General Election, but, as you may be aware, Sheffield M.E. Group is a registered charity, funded by the generosity of its members, and any outside funding we manage to secure. We have passed the first stage of a bid for funding we have placed with Aviva, and now we need your votes!

Project title: Reaching out to the M.E./Fibromyalgia community.

Funding level: £1,000

We are hoping to use this funding, if we can get it, to increase and diversify our events. Isolation is a big problem for members, and we want to help them get in contact and meet for mutual support and friendship.

Important Dates for your Diary in 2015

Information/Awareness Days at Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre There will be an information/awareness stall at Crystal Peaks (opposite McDonalds) on 8th and 22nd May, and on 14th and 28th June 2015, from 9.30am to 4.30pm.

M.E. Awareness Week The group had an information stall in the Winter Gardens in the centre of Sheffield every day during M.E. Awareness Week, which was from Monday 11th May until Friday 15th May 2015. The stall was open from 10.00am to 4.00pm. We had a lot of volunteers on-hand to talk to people, and a lot of literature on M.E. and fibromyalgia to give away. We also demonstrated some therapies which help some people with M.E. This all was a great success with lots of interest from passers-by and a number of members visiting the stall.

Annual General Meeting 2015 The 2015 AGM will take place at the The Circle Rockingham Lane Sheffield S1 4FW on Wednesday 24th June 2015. Further details to follow.
