She said: ‘I have a friend who has four children, two of whom have cystic fibrosis.

‘I have seen the stresses and worries that she goes through.

‘The thing with cystic fibrosis, as with a lot of invisible illnesses, is that unless it hits you first hand, you have no idea what those who deal with these conditions go through.

‘I want to give people the opportunity to support them.’

The class will be taking place at Eastoke Community Centre in Wheatlands Avenue, on Friday, June 23, 10am.
