The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I had stroke August 2017, I shouldn't be here now,

I had three things wrong, I have Cardiomyopathy , Had heart Attack, Then the stroke.

Then i had to have ICD fitted, An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator or automated implantable cardioverter defibrillator is a device implantable inside the body, able to perform cardioversion, defibrillation, and pacing of the heart.

The stroke affected the right leg, my right arm dont work like it should, and my hand is paralysed.

I also have something called Aphasia, is a complex language and communication disorder resulting from damage to the language centres of the brain. This damage was caused by a stroke.

I would like buy trike (bicycle) made to fit my disability. so I can give something back, to people who helped with my recovery.

To raise funds for/

Stroke Association

This is the trike want, its so nice to have freedom back agian.

“A life after stroke”

Please be aware when watching these videos i will some times swear, but that is down to my stroke, and it is called aphasia.

Also since the stroke i do get more emotional than before. I could be watching a film like marley & me and start crying for no reason. Xxx

Hi I would just like to say a very big thank you to those who have donated already, I do understand we will not get the full amount as we have been to look at a trike this week and once all the alterations to suit my needs are done, it will cost more than I expected,

But for me to be able to get out and give something back to the stroke Association means a lot to me, I so appriecate what you have all done already. Xxx
