O3 Insurance Solutions are proud to announce their support of the Stroke Association. Over the next year, O3 Insurance aim to raise £30,000 for the Stroke Association in support of stroke survivor.
In March 2020, Rontec Roadside Retail set out to raise £25,000 to support Stroke Association. Customers using the Roadside Retail facilities were asked to add 25p donations on to their purchase of fuel and groceries.
For over thirty years the Stroke Association has invested in research that has changed the lives of stroke survivors just like Karen. But the coronavirus pandemic has caused massive disruption to stroke research, and we’ve seen a dramatic reduction in our income.
A response to reports in the news about small, early studies that make it look like the coronavirus may be causing strokes.
We’re partnering with Smooth Radio to let people know that we’re still here to support them to rebuild their lives after stroke during these difficult times.
There is evidence that during the coronavirus pandemic fewer people have been recorded to have transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or stroke. That’s why the Stroke Association is urging people to continue to act fast and call 999 if they experience signs of stroke.
The Stroke Association is also a member of the Stroke Alliance for Europe (SAFE), a network of organisations that champion the voices of those affected by stroke. SAFE is currently involved in several European research projects. You can find out more about these projects hoping to improve treatment for stroke patients.
