Round of Applause

The Ipswich Epilepsy Support Group would like to thank The Ipswich Regent Theatre and The New Wolsey Theatre for thier help and kindness when two of our members had seizures. The Ipswich Regent put the person and their family in a box at no extra cost after the member had a seizure and the New Wolsey Theatre rearranged a show to another time of the week as one of our members could not make the show owing to a seizure lasting into the evening. This was offered by the member of staff automatically. Thank you again for being so understanding to our members.
