Young and old raise awareness of pulmonary fibrosis

The Nothern Region IPF support group held two different events of bubble blowing to raise awareness of pulmonary fibrosis during IPF Week last week.

The first event was with the residents of Homedowne House where their weekly coffee morning takes place – these residents were aged between 60 and 90.

The second event was with the mothers and toddlers of The Grange First School, assisted by the organisers of the group and the local representative of Newcastle Action for Parent & Toddler Groups Initiative (NAPI).

The events worked really well together and it was fantastic to see both young and old getting involved and raising awareness for this worthwhile cause.

At each event the posters and balloons were displayed and information distributed as well as talking to those individuals who expressed an interest in raising awareness of IPF in the local area.
