A support group for lung disease sufferers has joined forces with an Eastwood pub to host a Big Breakfast fundraiser and fight disease which affects one in five people.

The Breathe Easy Nottingham West group, which supports people with lung disease across the district, is hosting The Big Breakfast at The Lady Chatterley on Monday.

The event is in aid of the British Lung Foundation which works to make life easier for people suffering from a lung condition.

Breathe Easy group chairperson Jane Reeve suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which is used to describe a number of lung conditions including emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

Jane is now appealing for residents to support the event on Monday to battle the condition.

She said: “I just want to do something for a great cause and tell people about our support group Breathe Easy.

Lung disease now affects one in five people in the UK and BLF is the only charity to help sufferers.

For every breakfast bought between 9am and 12pm, Whetherspoons will donate 20 per cent of the price to the British Lung Foundation.
