Thank you so much for taking on your Stride for Stroke to help rebuild lives after stroke.
Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Depending on which part of the brain is affected, you may suddenly face communication and physical difficulties, or you may find that your emotions and personality are affected. The impact of a stroke can be completely life-altering, but so can the impact of your help.
- £10 could help us provide group support to stroke survivors, giving them confidence for their recovery.
- £56 could cover the costs of setting up a new volunteer, so they are ready to support voluntary groups in their community.
- £150 could help pay for research into new stroke treatments, as we did with thrombolysis - a clot-busting drug that returns the blood supply to the brain that has transformed the outcomes of stroke survivors who have received it.
- £500 could help pay for a five-year Senior Lectureship Award, a critical research role that facilitates life-changing discoveries to prevent and treat stroke.
With your support, we can provide vital services to help stroke survivors rebuild their lives during this difficult time. Thank you.
