The Stroke Association is the UK’s leading stroke charity who strongly believe strokes can and should be prevented, however this health challenge does not receive the attention or funding it requires. The organisation works directly with stroke survivors and their families, health and social care professionals and scientists and researchers.
Make May Purple is back for 2017 and the Stroke Association are encouraging everyone to take part through a number of fundraising activities. Over 1 million people across the UK are rebuilding their lives’ after having a stroke. Supporters of Make May Purple across Gateshead, Kibblesworth, Blaydon, Ryton, Rowlands Gill, Dunston, Wickham, Felling, Low Fell, Birtley and Sunniside will help the Stroke Association fund vital research into stroke care and treatment. Communities are encouraged to wear purple, bake purple treats or even set challenges and raise funds using the sponsorship form.
