Osteoporosis, or Brittle Bone Disease, affects 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men aged over 50.
We aim to raise funds to support local research associated with the disease and to support the hospital based diagnostic and treatment services.
Our main sources of income is through generous benefactors and high quality, entertaining events.
