Brain illness group to be launched

A SUPPORT group for people with neurological conditions and their carers is being launched in the borough.

Ataxia is the name given to different types of brain illnesses affecting speech, balance and co-ordination.

A Doncaster branch is being set up by Ataxia UK, the condition’s national charity.

Everyone is invited to come along to a launch event at the Holiday Inn, off High Road in Warmsworth, on April 21, at noon.

There is currently no known cure for Ataxia which affects over 10,000 adults and more than 4,000 children in the UK.
