10 years ago my darling wife had a life changing stroke. She was no longer able to care for herself and I found myself as her carer. Seeing as I couldn't even work the washing machine this was quite a challenge.
Caring for someone with stroke can be a solitary experience – and a tiring one. Stroke association carers' groups provide information and advice for carers, as well as the invaluable opportunity to socialise with others in the same situation.
Over the years we learned to adapt into our new family life, all the way supported by stroke club and we couldn't be more thankful for this.
A year ago we lost my beloved Joy. Through the heartache of losing my best friend Chiltern Stroke Club have still been there for me and i would like to give something back with this challenging walk.
I am not young at 78, but i will be walking the Pennine way over a few days all in all walking 268 Miles! This is not an easy walk as it has substantial inclines to negotiate. If you would like to read more please do https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennine_Way
