Learn how to prevent stroke with association

The Stroke Association will mark World Stroke Day today (Thursday) by raising awareness of the condition at Pocklington Group Practice.

The local Stroke Association team will be on hand at the practice at The Beckside Centre on Amos Drive in Pocklington.

They’ll be providing information and advice on the causes of stroke to visitors from 10am-3pm.

Sally Welch, communication support coordinator at the Stroke Association, said: “We hope to see lots of people on Thursday when they can learn about how to help prevent stroke.”

The association is calling on people to ‘Give a Hand’ and raise funds for the charity. Visit www.stroke.org.uk/giveahand for more information.
