This is a very exciting time to join the Stroke Association and this post presents a junior fundraiser with a real opportunity to make their mark. Under the leadership of our CEO and new Executive Director of Income Generation we are now developing a new strategy for doubling income from voluntary fundraising.
Stroke Association Voluntary Groups provide long term social support to people affected by stroke. They organise events and meet together to reduce social isolation and rebuild the confidence of members. Committee members organise and ensure the smooth running of the groups.
Stenting of the carotid arteries (running up the sides of the neck) is a common surgical procedure to reduce the risk of stroke. Stenting involves inserting a metal mesh into the artery to help widen it and improve blood flow.
We want to say a huge thank you to all of our supporters.
