In December 2011 John Young and his wife Carol attended an osteoporosis awareness session at George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton.

John discovered that there was no local support group so he decided to talk about there being one.  From this session he also discovered that from previous awareness sessions there were people who would be willing to become members.  John formed a committee; he became the Chairman and formed The Nuneaton and District Osteoporosis Support Group. We now have a thriving group meeting four times a year with a guest speaker at each meeting, meeting on the first Thursday of March, June, September and November. There is no membership fee, admission is free, and the group relies on donations and fund raising of which we give 10% to the National Osteoporosis Society.
