Bromsgrove's Life After Stroke Centre appeals for help to get new kitchen and resource library up and running

AN APPEAL has been launched for local businesses to donate towards a new drop-in room at Bromsgrove’s Life After Stroke Centre.

The space will feature an accessible kitchen area and resource library and the charity is hoping town firms will be able to provide their expertise and equipment to get it up-and-running.

The area will provide a safe space for groups while staff and volunteers will also use the space to support stroke survivors in the community.

Some cash has been raised to construct the room but the kitchenette will need two new units, a fridge, sink, flooring and trade experts to help wire and fit the area.

Nicola Miller, the centre’s activities co-ordinator, said she was delighted to see how the room was progressing but help was needed.

“We would be so grateful if there are any kitchen fitting businesses or local tradespeople that can help with kitchen units, laying floors and plumbing and electrical work.

“For a while now, we have wanted to create a drop-in room which local stroke survivors, their families and carers can access during the week, not just when activities are running at the centre.

“The centre is a lifeline for many people in the community and our new room will go a long way to help more stroke survivors rebuild their lives after stroke.

“This room is for the centre users and will play a crucial role in transforming us from an activity centre into a community.”

The new room needs to be fully-accessible for anyone with physical or sensory impairments.

Anyone who can help with the appeal or needing more information can email Nicola at Nicola.miller@stroke.org.uk or call 01527 903903.
