                                                                          Introduction

Arthritis afflicts all age groups, children and young adults as well as the elderly. It is a painful and debilitating disease for which at present there is no cure. Treatment options involve drugs, physiotherapy, diet and exercise or joint replacement to control pain and slow the progress of the disease. Research is urgently needed in all these areas but is entirely funded by voluntary contributions from charities such as Arthritis Research UK.

25 years ago a small group got together in Chew Stoke to organise fundraising events and today many of this same group are still dedicated to the cause. Between them they raise £5 to 6,000 a year through coffee mornings, house to house collections, village fetes or rattling a tin outside a supermarket. But more local help is urgently needed. If you feel you could spare an hour or two to man a stall at your local fete or to help in the House to House collection due in June you could make a significant contribution. We would like to hear from you.
