Bluebird Care is supporting Make May Purple, an annual campaign run by the Stroke Association that takes place in May every year.

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.

During Make May Purple this year, the Stroke Association is encouraging everyone to wear purple during the month to raise funds to help support stroke survivors. This could be at school, work or at home, for 1 day to the whole month. You could even dye your hair or host a purple party, every effort counts!

Over 1 million people across the UK are rebuilding their lives’ after having a stroke and supporters of Make May Purple 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 and share their efforts on social media using the hash tag #MakeMayPurple.
