Supporting neurological well-being in East Berkshire!
Sequela was set up in 2013 to provide support for people with conditions such as Parkisons, Multiple Sclerosis, Post Polio, Dementia and many more. The Official Opening by Theresa May took place in March 2013.
The Sequela Foundation was founded by Pat Capp who had very successfully run a Swim School for 33 years. She was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis (a rare strain of Multiple Sclerosis) in 2006. In spite of having to deal with the debilitating condition, she has worked unceasingly with some very committed volunteers to first raise funds for the Centre and then to ensure that refreshments and activities are available every week.
The Therapy Centre is open every Tuesday and provides therapies including massage, reflexology, exercise classes, which are adjusted to the needs of the group, but perhaps more importantly, a chance to meet others with similar conditions and share a lunch provided by the enthusiastic volunteers.
