Roundhay Stroke Support Club celebrates its tenth anniversary

Roundhay Stroke Support Club is celebrating ten years of helping stroke survivors to rebuild their lives.

The group aims to give stroke survivors help and encouragement in a friendly atmosphere, along with the opportunity to meet with others in a similar situation and help people regain their confidence.

The club was formed in 2009 for stroke survivors to get back to the community, once they had been supported through their recovery by the Stroke Association’s Communication Support Service. Now the group is an independent, self-financing club affiliated to the Stroke Association with 15 members and 13 volunteers.

The club meets on the second and fourth Thursday of the month from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at Oakwood Church on Springwood Road.

Chairman Jon Hart said: “It’s vital that stroke survivors have support throughout their recovery, and the group is a lifeline for many people in the Leeds community. The group has helped many stroke survivors throughout their recovery by enabling them to share their stories and experiences, and chat to other people in a similar situation.

“Our group welcomes anyone who has had a stroke, along with their partner or carer if they wish. We’re always looking for new members to join in, and anyone interested in getting involved is welcome to get in touch.”

Grace Feeney, volunteering and community officer at the Stroke Association, said: “This special anniversary is testament to the difference Roundhay Stroke Support Club makes every day to the lives of stroke survivors and their families.”
