Over 30 stroke survivors and Abington residents raised over £3,000 for the Stroke Association, by taking part in the charity’s Step out for Stroke walk in Hales Meadow on Saturday 10 June.
Natalie Bettinson, Community and Events Fundraising Manager at the Stroke Association, said: “The local community really helped us to make this an event to remember and we’re delighted with the turnout and amount raised. We’re very grateful to everyone for their support.
“Our Step Out for Stroke events mark a milestone for many stroke survivors taking part and some truly inspirational people took their first steps since their stroke. Everyone who took part has helped to raise vital funds for people affected by stroke.”
