Supporting neurological well-being in East Berkshire
The Sequela Foundation was set up in 2012 to provide support for people with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Ataxia – to name but the most common ones. The Official Opening by Theresa May took place in March 2013.
The Sequela Foundation was launched by Pat Capp. Pat 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.
Since the beginning of 2018, our base has been the NMCC Sports Bar at Summerleaze Park. We are open every Tuesday and provide therapies which include massage, reflexology and exercise classes, all of which are adjusted to the needs of the group. Perhaps even more importantly, the meetings provide a chance to socialise with others with similar conditions and share a lunch.
Anke Heley took over as Chair in July 2017 and continues the excellent work assisted by a wonderful group of enthusiastic trustees and volunteers.
