Thanking our longest serving Trustee
Trustee Deborah Breakspear steps down
After 27 years on our Board of Trustees, we are sad to announce that Deborah Breakspear is stepping down from her role.
 
Debbie became a Trustee in 1991, after a  friend introduced her to the Charity, following a severe flare-up in her arthritis. She recalls being offered very sympathetic and understanding advice and was put in touch with Arthritis Action’s experts who introduced her to our self-management approach. We want to thank her for her service and wish her all the best for the future.
