Remember - It need not be a huge affair, if you can just manage to invite a couple of friends or neighbours in ,even for half an hour (get them to make the Cuppa if you are not able).
Ask friends, family or local firms & businesses to get involved, maybe they could hold "Cuppa for M.E." Tea/Coffee breaks at work.
