PAMS Support Group 

(Positive Action for Multiple Sclerosis) 

 

 

PAMS' is an informal self-help group for anyone living with Multiple Sclerosis in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, Surrey and surrounding areas.

 

We have an evening meeting once a month at The Royal British Legion. We also enjoy a monthly weekday get-together in the cafe of a local garden centre.

 

Other social events are organised throughout the year, such as a trip to the coast, a visit to a museum or other attraction.  If you fancy something else, we are always open to suggestions and offers of help!

 

Do get in touch by emailing pamsgroup@hotmail.co.uk or pams.secretary@hotmail.co.uk
