Supporting neurological well-being in East Berkshire!
Sequela was set up in 2012 to provide support for people with conditions such as Parkisons and Multiple Sclerosis. The Official Opening by Theresa May took place in March 2013.
The Sequela Foundation was founded by Pat Capp. 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 worked unceasingly with some very committed volunteers to first raise funds for the centre and then set it up.
The Centre is open every Tuesday and provides therapies which include massage, reflexology, exercise classes, all of which are adjusted to the needs of the group. Perhaps even more importantly, the day provides a chance to meet others with similar conditions and share a lunch.
Anke Heley became Chair in September 2017 and continues the excellent work assisted by a wonderful group of enthusiastic volunteers.
