A SOUTHAMPTON organisation has raised enough money to pay for vital breathing equipment.

Breath Easy members will gather at St Marks Church in Southampton on January 29 to deliver a Spirometer machine, which measures the movement of air in and out of the lungs.

The group have worked alongside local exercise maintenance groups since July last year and managed to raise over £1,300, which will fund the equipment.

The Spirometer will be kept in St Marks Church for weekly respiratory classes.
