Thank you for fund-raising

I am writing to say a huge thank you to everyone in your area that has run, swam, walked, abseiled, hopped, held their breath, or baked for the Stroke Association over the last year.

We have seen some fantastic support and recently saw the local Royal Mail team complete 5k runs, wash cars, play cricket tournaments and bubble football to help raise an incredible £1million. It is a fantastic achievement and we are so grateful.

Thanks to the millions of pounds raised by our supporters and charity partners, the Stroke Association has been able to support stroke survivors in their life after stroke and invest in ground-breaking research.

Since September 2014, Royal Mail staff have been raising money so that we can continue to provide Life After Stroke Grants to stroke survivors and their families. These help survivors take their first steps back into the community.

We will be continuing to work with Royal Mail over the next year to raise a further £1million to fund up to 10,000 recovery and activity grants.
