Sunny Thinking turns 10 this year!
Each year we try to give a percentage of our time and profits to worthy charities and causes. This year we have chosen the Stroke Association and in honour of our 10th birthday, we will be challenging ourselves to complete 10 fundraising challenges (1 each month) over the next 10 months.
We will reveal each challenge at the start of every month. The aim is to take part in physically and mentally challenging activities (as well as some 'just for fun' fundraisers) to push ourselves and raise as much money as we possibly can for the Stroke Association.
Why the Stroke Association?
Stroke has touched the lives of many people we know. For Jonathan in particular, this charity is very close to his heart. 5 years ago his amazing sister-in-law Judith suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage (a bleed on the brain) that caused a stroke. 5 years down the line, Judith currently now lives in a care home with 24 hour support as she bravely battles to improve her health and wellbeing. The impact this has had on not only Judith but all her immediate family and friends remains massive. We just hope our efforts go someway to support people like Judith, their families and friends.
There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK with 100,000 strokes happening in the UK each year. That’s one stroke every five minutes.
Even though you are now twice as likely to survive a stroke compared to 20 years ago, stroke is still the fourth single largest cause of death in the UK. For survivors of a stroke, it can take away your speech, your ability to walk, your memory and your independence.
