Stroke Association helps Frodsham turn purple!

THE Stroke Association helped to turn Frodsham purple to raise awareness of the charity’s fundraising month, Make May Purple.
In the UK there are 1.2 million people living with the effects of stroke.
Jane Fenwick, Helen Frimston, Lynsey Pinch and Karen Davies, Stroke Association support co-ordinators, visited local businesses and shops to raise awareness of stroke and collect vital funds. Any money raised through Make May Purple for Stroke will enable the charity to support many more stroke survivors to rebuild their lives.
Jane Fenwick said: “When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do.
“Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt. The Stroke Association rebuilds lives and with the local community’s help we can support even more stroke survivors.
“That’s why we took to the streets of Frodsham to raise awareness and encourage people to get involved. Thank you to everyone who has supported the Stroke Association during Make May Purple.”
The Stroke Association provides a Stroke Support Service in Chester and the West Cheshire area, in partnership with Western Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
And Frodsham has its own active Stroke Club which meets monthly at Frodsham Community Centre.
