Ann - "Unfortunately I have suffered from broken bones in the spine caused by osteoporosis. I regularly attend Poole Support Group. We hear about drug treatments, keeping active and many other things. It isn’t just about getting information, it is meeting other people in a similar situation to me".
On Monday 4th June 2012, the residents of Beamish Road and Warburton Road, Canford Heath held a ‘Diamond Jubilee Party in the Park’. 300 people attended, they took food to share and organised fun activities i.e. egg and spoon and sack races etc. £466 was raised to go to charity. Ann nominated Osteoporosis Dorset, “I was delighted that my charity was drawn out of the hat. I love where I live, people are so neighbourly and friendly – just like people at the Poole Support Group”.
