30th May Five minutes of Fame. A chance for people to share an experience or hobby coping with tremors. We heard from Ryan Williams an actor and how he copes with his tremors using techniques learnt from acting school. Hannah Eaton a young lady from Scotland with a passion for wildlife photography who spoke & shared her beautiful photos. Also Colin Heath a model railway enthusiast shared his hobby of past 30 years. It was wonderful to hear how people with tremors cope and be an inspiration to others.
With the success of May, June events are promising to be equally varied.
Hope to see you online in June
