The Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association
aims to provide equipment and services to improve the quality of life of those with CF in the Southend area (Essex, UK). We are a registered charity and we are reliant on fundraising events and individual donations, as we receive no Government funding. Running costs of the charity are nil as the committee are all volunteers, many of them being CF parents. Examples of what we provide are nebulisers, in-flight oxygen, trampolines and exercise equipment to improve fitness, and prescription payments.
