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.

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.
