Kent Support Group

The Kent Support Group was set up after the Cardiomyopathy UK information day in Maidstone in November 2013 and held its first meeting in March 2014.

The support group is organised by Colin Mcvittie (below) and Sarah, and aims to provide people with information about living with cardiomyopathy as well as offering the opportunity to meet others affected by the same condition.
