What is Make May Purple for stroke?

Make May Purple for stroke is our annual stroke awareness month, which takes place every May. Friends, families and communities are invited to show their support for people who have been affected by stroke.

We're planning for 2017 and asking you to think about ways that you can get involved, to raise money and awareness for our work supporting people affected by stroke. See what our supporters did in 2016 for some ideas.
