Fighting back with fashion

Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman and Irish singer Sinead O’Connor both suffer from Fibromyalgia but not a lot of people are aware of that or indeed what the condition is. Unfortunately it is the same for people in our own community here in Renfrewshire. But one group of hard working people are trying to change all that and raise awareness of the widespread condition that can change families lives as victims struggle to cope with chronic pain and fatigue along with other debilitating symptoms. The Fibromyalgia Paisley and Inverclyde Network (Fibro PaIN) are holding a charity fashion show with the backing of Matalan in Linwood on Sunday, September 6 as part of Fibromyalgia Awareness Week which runs until September 13. Tickets cost £5 for the show which starts at 7pm as well as refreshments. I’m told there’s a 10% discount on anything bought on the night. This group and what they do deserves so much more support so if you’re free why not go along and enjoy the catwalk show.
