The group’s Brain Bus visited Weston Fun Farm on September13 as part of their campaign to tackle Lincolnshire’s chronic pain problem.

“We met some brilliant people, so we were really pleased.”

The Brain Bus offered a number of different experiences, illusions and virtual reality stations to teach visitors about managing persistent pain.

“People came along and said everything we did made sense.

“Because persistent pain is complicated, normally if you go and see a GP about it there isn’t time to look into it.

“I think it was nice for people to come and really spend some time to understand and make sense of things.

“It made some people laugh. Of course it’s a serious subject, but it was nice to get out on the road and give a different experience to what you might expect.”
