Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This year, I have chosen Stroke.org.uk for our fundraising activities.  Stroke is a unique condition.  It strikes in an instant but its effects can last a lifetime. With the right treatment, care and support, stroke survivors can make a good recovery and maintain a good quality of life.

In 1987 my Mother suffered a stroke as a result of a ruptured cerebral aneurysm.  She survived, but was severely disabled, never regaining full mobility or speech.  I think aphasia, being ‘lost for words’ was the most difficult thing for her to bear.  In 2002, she died after suffering a second stroke.  

Stroke.org.uk are the UK's leading charity dedicated to conquering stroke.  

Your support will change the lives of stroke survivors by funding vital services and life-saving research.

Their Resolution Run theme grabbed my attention, because over the festive period, I managed to gain half a stone and with shorter days and inclement weather, my running sessions have been few and far between.  I resolve to lose that extra weight, get back out running and improve my general level of fitness.  My daughter Melanie has agreed to join me in a series of Resolution Runs/Walks throughout March, as a warm up for our Potters ‘Arf Marathon in June.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
