Tackling Macular disease

It is believed that there are in the region of 280 people in Thanet over the age of 60, who suffer from the effects of Macular disease. The figures were given by Samantha Amphlett , the regional fund raiser for the Macular Society to members of Ramsgate Rotary Club. She revealed that there are already groups for those affected by the disease in Thanet with one meeting on a monthly basis at Harbour Parade. She explained how the society helped with such things as support to improve lives for those affected, as well as funding research into the disease.
