Fundraiser for COPD support group

Members of a support group for sufferers of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease will sell badges at various locations in the city on Wednesday November 17 to mark World Pin Badge Day for COPD.

The condition, which affects a large number of people in Ireland, includes illnesses such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis and sometimes asthma.

It is primarily characterised by extreme shortness of breath, with many sufferers having to use oxygen 24 hours a day.
