Redditch Stroke Support group celebrates five years of achievement
1:40pm Thursday 21st February 2013 in Local
THERE were celebrations in Redditch when a support group marked a great achievement.
The Redditch Stroke Support Group recently received its five year Certificate of Achievement from the Stroke Association in London, and Karen Lumley, Redditch’s MP, met the group to congratulate members.
A spokesman said: “Many people who’ve been affected by stroke find help and support from others who have had similar experiences.
“The Redditch Stroke Support Group offers invaluable peer and social support. Through regular meetings and a programme of activities, it invites people to come together, share experiences, regain confidence, relearn skills, and try out new things.
“So if you have had a stroke, or know someone who has, the group meet on Wednesdays fortnightly, from 10.30am -1pm at Loxley Close Community Centre, Church Hill.”
For further information, call Jill Easton on 01789 488605.
Lynn Drew of L A Drew Services, a bookkeeper and administrator, and Redditch Stroke Support Group treasurer, added that from this April she will be donating a percentage of her quarterly profits to various charities and has chosen the stroke support group for her first donation.
