The legacies team host a number of fascinating supporter events every year. Each event is held at a special venue where guests can enjoy a light lunch and get to meet other supporters and members of Stroke Association staff. The highlight of the day is a presentation delivered by a leading stroke researcher, followed by an inspirational talk from a stroke survivor’s perspective.  

Legacies make up over half of all the donations we receive, and are the foundations of our ground-breaking research. Guests will also learn how legacies are helping to turn the tide against stroke.
