EVERYONE is welcome to a community fayre being held at Bromsgrove’s Life After Stroke Centre (LASC) on Thursday (May 8) to celebrate the building’s second anniversary.
A variety of activities are planned for the event which will help kick-start Action on Stroke Month. That is happening throughout May and is aimed at raising awareness of stroke and showcasing the work done at the LASC.
Hugh Tibbits, The Stroke Association’s regional head of operations for the West Midlands, said: “The Bromsgrove community has always been incredibly supportive during our first two years here.
“The Life after Stroke Centre is the first of its kind in the UK and we want to celebrate its birthday with the people who helped to make it a reality.”
The doors will open at 12midday and those who go along will be able to find out more about stroke, mini-stroke and the services available at the cetnre for stroke survivors and their families.
Visitors will also be able to have their blood pressure checked and get advice on the best ways of reducing their risk of stroke.
Thursday’s event will also act as an official opening of the new Edith Murphy House which encompasses a lounge, arts and crafts room and quiet room which stroke survivors and their families can use. Some activities on the day also will be focused around the Courtyard ‘community garden’
