Arthritis Week

Mike Supports Arthritis WeekMike Gapes MP  has joined  Arthritis Research UK in raising awareness of arthritis and the devastating impact it has on 1 in 6 people in the UK.

Mike  showed his support at a parliamentary event hosted by Arthritis Research UK marking National Arthritis Week (7-13 October) and World Arthritis Day (12 October). Arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions are long term conditions that are painful, often debilitating and can impact greatly on people’s quality of life.

 Mike said: “I’m delighted to support Arthritis Research UK’s work in raising awareness of arthritis and other conditions of the muscles, bones and joints. Today’s event has helped me to fully appreciate the impact of osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis on the daily lives of many people in the UK. With that in mind, it’s important that people across {insert name of constituency} take the opportunity to learn more about arthritis and get involved in National Arthritis Week.”
