Style for Stroke

We've been lucky enough to team up with award winning fashion and style PR expert Nick Ede, to launch an exciting new initiative. Style for Stroke is committed to raising much-needed awareness about stroke among the UK’s younger generations, helping to do away with the myth that strokes only happen to older people.

Nick Ede, founder of the Style for Stroke campaign and the annual Night with Nick in aid of the Stroke Association has been a long standing supporter of ours, having lost his mother to stroke.

Nick Ede's story

Nick Ede, Creative Director at EdenCancan PR tells us why he set up the Style for Stroke initiative.

"My mother passed away from a stroke. It changed me and made me realise that I knew nothing about strokes so I was determined to make a difference and raise awareness especially among younger people. I love fashion and style and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to engage a demographic who may not necessarily be engaged in understanding the gravity of stroke and what it can do."
