Stroke Assistance Lottery Grant
The lottery presents a prize to the Stroke Association
THE Stroke Association in Scotland is the latest organization to receive a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund.
The charity aims to develop and expand its peer support offerings to help those affected by stroke like Heather Melville-Hume (pictured) of Galashiels.
Heather suffered a stroke at the age of 43 and was unable to walk confidently or use her right lower arm and dominant hand.
Kate Still, Scottish President of the National Lottery Community Fund: Said: “In these unprecedented times it is heartwarming to see how Scottish communities are coming together to help each other. I would like to congratulate the Stroke Association in Scotland for their award which is a testament to the incredible efforts of their staff and volunteers. National Lottery players can take pride in knowing that the money they raise makes such a difference. “
John Watson, Stroke Association Director for Scotland, said: “We will use the funding to continue and expand support options for people recovering from stroke across Scotland. This support will help stroke survivors connect with local groups, facilitate Zoom meetings, and organize face-to-face support groups. “
The National Lottery Community Fund offers grants to organizations across the UK that strive to improve their local communities.
