CRPS Band Night
This Saturday, Seacliff Clubhouse in Oak Lane, Minster hosts the 2nd Burning Nights fundraiser to raise funds for CRPS research. The event is organised by Steve Wood, Lead Singer of Clear Water (featured on TGR recently) and Stoned, the Rolling Stones tribute band.
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic (lasting greater than six months) pain condition that most often affects one limb (arm, leg, hand, or foot) usually after an injury. CRPS is believed to be caused by damage to, or malfunction of, the peripheral and central nervous systems. The central nervous system is composed of the brain and spinal cord; the peripheral nervous system involves nerve signaling from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. CRPS is characterized by prolonged or excessive pain and changes in skin color, temperature, and/or swelling in the affected area.
CRPS symptoms vary in severity and duration, although some cases are mild and eventually go away. In more severe cases, individuals may not recover and may have long-term disability.
The event starts at 12.30 and runs throughout the day, entrance is £5. All proceeds got to Burning Nights CRPS Support Charity.
Organiser Steve Wood will be in the studio with Pete Finch this Friday morning after 10am.
