Dear YOUR MP'S NAME

I am writing as one of your constituents to ask that you attend the next meeting of the APPG for M.E. being held on Tuesday 16 June at 10am. The group is chaired by Carol Monaghan MP.

M.E. is a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that causes symptoms affecting many body systems, more commonly the nervous and immune systems. It is an often misunderstood condition that affects roughly 400 children and adults in our constituency.

At this next meeting, you can hear about how the condition affects children and what you can do to help.

If you are unable to attend this meeting, please contact Action for M.E. who are offering short Zoom sessions for MPs to find out more about the condition and what you can do to help people like me. You can email Sam Bromiley at the charity on sam@actionforme.org.uk or call on 0117 927 9551.

Kind regards
