Wake up to Lyme: Lyme Disease awareness month

2 May 2024
Wake up to Lyme: Lyme Disease awareness month
This month, Classic Canes is supporting Lyme Disease UK's Wake Up To Lyme campaign.  Lyme Disease is a tick-borne bacterial disease that can result in very debilitating symptoms.  If caught early, it can be easy to treat but many people do not know what to look out for, so greater awareness is needed.

Our founder, Diana Porter, has suffered from this disease for some time and is keen to help others avoid the same health problems she has experienced.  Ticks are common in woodlands and moorlands but also parks and gardens so everyone needs to know about this increasingly common disease.

We are delighted to have teamed up with our neighbours at AH Warren Trust who have selected Lyme Disease UK as their nominated charity for their Coombe Farm Sporting Charity Clay Pigeon Shoot on 11th May 2024.  Pictured here are Diana Porter (left) discussing the need for Lyme Disease awareness with Guy Coleman, joint managing director of AH Warren Trust.

The Charity Clay Pigeon Shoot is an important local event and we are very grateful to the Trust for joining us in supporting Lyme Disease UK.

Spotted: Stephen Fry with a Classic Canes amber-effect orthopaedic cane We love a good celebrity-spotting at Classic Canes and so we are delighted to see actor Stephen Fry out and about in London with a Classic Canes left-handed amber-effect orthopaedic cane.  He is a great favourite in the Classic Canes office, where we are very partial to an old Jeeves and Wooster episode.
