(Estimated reading time: 1 minute 32 seconds)

Following the success of their first ever workshops for sufferers of Cauda Equina Syndrome, CES Champions are hosting 4 workshops around the UK this year. Everyone with CES is welcome to come whether they’ve been newly diagnosed or have had it for a long time, so if you have any clients, colleagues, friends or family who may benefit from these workshops, please contact Paige Hargreaves – – to reserve a place.

Further details of the workshops can be found below;

They have planned FOUR more CES workshops for 2024! The first two are now open for reservations.

  • Sunday 19th – Monday 20th May – Bury, Lancashire (in partnership with JMW Solicitors)
  • Sunday 23rd – Monday 24th June – Borehamwood, Watford (in partnership with Moore Barlow Solicitors)

They will also be holding workshops in Birmingham and Sheffield in Autumn/Winter but bookings won’t open until summer.

The invitation is open to anyone who has been diagnosed with CES plus a loved one, friend or carer. The workshop will cover all things CES and will provide a welcoming, caring group environment. Each workshop will include:

  • An overnight hotel stay on the Sunday night
  • Three course meal on the Sunday night in the hotel restaurant (as a group)
  • Breakfast on Monday morning followed by the CES workshop (approx. 10am to 3pm) with lunch and refreshments included.

The cost of the event will be covered by the charity except for travel. They ask that attendees pay for the hotel room up front (this will be non-refundable) and they will reimburse the cost of the room (max £100) after you have attended the event. Unfortunately, if you book the room but don’t attend the event, they will be unable to reimburse the cost of the room.

If you would like to know more about the charity or find out how you can support them, please visit their website or contact our Lisa Fricker.
