OMEGA competition

(We have a Facebook page – do come and “like” us and say hi)

We don’t usually promote competitions, but when we were asked to mention this, it was an easy choice. A former flatmate of mine was helped greatly by an ME support group, so I’m happy to do anything I can to raise awareness. Here are the details in the organisers’ own words

OMEGA is the, Oxford Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) Group for Action. We Are a support and campaign group for ME/CFS sufferers and their carers in Oxfordshire.

We would really appreciate your help in encouraging people to take part and bring our competition to the attention of as many people as possible.
