A NEW support group for people struggling with COPD and other breathing difficulties has started up in Wollescote.

‘BIBO - Breathe In Breath Out’ is led by Angela Rea who has lived with COPD for many years and has gathered a wealth of knowledge about coping with breathing problems.

She said: “I felt the need to start this social group so people can help each other, to provide a space for sufferers to socialise knowing that they will have a sympathetic ear and understanding help on hand should they need it.”

The group meets Mondays from 1pm to 3pm at Bethel Chapel, Wollescote.

Angie plans to host speakers and healthcare professionals to offer further practical support, such as breathing techniques and available financial help.

Anyone is welcome to attend and have a chat over tea and sandwiches with others living with chronic breathing issues.

For more information, call Angie on 07505 811977.
