BREATHE EASY CROYDON (BEC) was formed in September 1998
    It is a group for people with breathing problems, run by people with breathing problems. We meet monthly on the first Thursday in the month at Saint Matthews Church Hall, Chichester Road, East Croydon, between 12.30 and 14.30.
    We provide support, advice, information and a smile for our members.
    Most members are able to come along and enjoy the meetings where they can have a chat and a nice cup of tea and hear talks from speakers ranging from medical to just plain fun. We also arrange other activities at the hall from time to time.
    We have trips out and sometimes visit other Breathe Easy groups. We raise money towards vital lung research and equipment for our local hospital. We also campaign regularly for improvements in the quality of life of all people suffering breathing problems.
    We also produce a monthly newsletter which is very popular with our members. Those who cannot get to the meetings are able to keep in touch with what is going on by reading it. We also have a liaison officer who keeps in regular contact with them.
