reMEmber, the Hurstpierpoint/Hassocks based charity which helps people who have ME (Myalgic Encephalopathy, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) has events taking place this month.
A VE Day Anniversary Dance takes place at Danny House, Saturday 9th May 7.30pm. Dance or listen to the Glenn Miller Big Band Sound with Michael Gverny, Jo Kimber and Helen Bartlett. Sponsored by Mishon Mackay. Tickets £20 (includes light supper) from Mishon Mackay or the Mint House. Or by post from reMEmber.
Then, later in the month, the ME Awareness Conference is on at Martlets Hall, Burgess Hill, Saturday 30th May at 2pm. Key speakers are Dr Charles Shepherd (medical adviser to the ME Association), Dr Clare McDermott on research and her work with severely affected patients, and Sue Luscombe, dietician, on irritable bowel syndrome and helpful diets.

reMEmber has always operated from Hurstpierpoint and our focus has always been on local adults and children who have the disease. However, we immediately attracted interest from patients all over Sussex and beyond.
