Visiting Suffolk Oxygen Therapy Centre

Posted on: October 06 2016

Hi everyone,dsc_0030.jpg

In September I visited the Suffolk Oxygen Therapy Centre in Great Blakenham where they held their open day to celebrate the purchase of their new building.

Currently they operate out of a porta cabin but are moving into a large warehouse with two floors which will give them more room for two oxygen units, and the upstairs they have room to convert one area into three therapy rooms and the other into an office.

It was also very enlightening for me personally to see how the oxygen units work and the benefits this has on the lives of people affected by MS. I spoke with many of their clients who said they felt energised after coming out of the chamber and were able to be very active for the rest of the day without feeling tired.

dsc_0031-1.jpgMany people visited for the day and there was a good atmosphere with a tombola and raffle.

MS-UK had a stand which was situated in the main area next to the two large tables full of homemade cakes and jam…yummy!

It was a busy day with lots of enquiries about Josephs Court and lots of people took leaflets about our work.

You can find out more about Suffolk Oxygen Therapy Centre on their website.

Best wishes,
