Weekend stage set for group
A newly registered charity is having its official launch this weekend on Douglas promenade.
Mannin Sepsis was created by Dee Struthers and Alison Thomas to raise awareness of the symptoms of the deadly condition, and support sufferers.
Mrs Struthers' daughter Ann died from sepsis, as doctors only recognised the symptoms late on.
Ms Thomas narrowly survived having the condition.
A special 'sepsis challenge', motorbike shows, and a band will also be there for the occasion - Mrs Struthers says now they're official, the group can finally 'get on with it'.
