PhilBuckleyWe are really sorry to have to share the news that Phil Buckley has passed away. We were shocked to hear of his death and wish to pass on our condolences on behalf of everyone from the Fibromyalgia Paisley and Inverclyde Network to his partner Christine.

The Paisley and Inverclyde Group would not have been restarted without Phil’s intervention and determination to seek support as well as provide it for others who suffer from fibromyalgia.

IKEA_2011_donation_200The Paisley Fibromyalgia group camped out at IKEA’s exit doors on the weekend of the May 1st Bank holiday. They bravely resisted the temptations of the hotdogs but a couple did fall victim to the charms of the incredibly cheap (and delicious) ice cream…..

Standing at the doors was a rewarding experience for the group as we managed to raise over £430 for the group and as well as this there were many awareness leaflets handed out. A number of local contacts were made and we even managed to make people aware of groups across Scotland that they could attend.

FMA UK Website Articles

Fibromyalgia Action UK is a registered charity administered primarily by unpaid volunteers. The majority of volunteers are also fibromyalgia sufferers who work extremely hard, despite their condition, in order to forward the cause of fibromyalgia. FMA UK was established in order to provide information and support to sufferers and their families. In addition, the Association provides medical information for professionals and operates a national helpline.
