Would you be interested in joining as a volunteer helper, lunch team leader or Trustee? We are a small, friendly team, enthusiastic about helping stroke survivors and their carers.
Lunch Helper – you would welcome members as they arrive, chat and get to know them as you hand round tea, coffee and sandwiches
Lunch Team Leader – you would buy the ingredients, prepare the sandwich lunch and oversee other helpers in the kitchen
Trustees – we are seeking new Trustees interested in supporting stroke survivors and their carers
DBS checks will be required for all Trustees and Lunch Team Leaders and Helpers
We enjoyed a festive meal at Mary’s Community Centre. And Chris from InterAct Stroke Support led a session of jokes, stories and conversation.
On Thursday we enjoyed the return of Healthy Generations – leading our session of singing and dancing.
We enjoyed our September session of Storytelling with Chris. Look out for our next Storytelling session on October 14th. If you would like to join our lunch sessions contact the Club Secretary
Jane, Club Secretary, presenting Kathleen with flowers. Kathleen became a committee member, then Stroke Club Treasurer in 1998, after a fellow member of St Mary’s Church in Islington heard she had retired, having worked as an accountant. For over 20 years Kathleen helped provide our weekly lunches in Mary’s Community Centre. Kathleen remembers the Club marking the Millennium in 2000, when the award of a grant enabled the hire of coaches with wheelchair facilities for awaydays in Clacton and Eastbourne.
Come along to our friendly lunch sessions – every Thursday 12noon to 2pm – for a sandwich lunch and conversation in our spacious and well-ventilated meeting room. If you would like to visit for the first time please contact our Club Secretary to book your place or to enquire on behalf of a friend or relative.
Nine members enjoyed a successful Covid-safe lunch at Mary’s Community Centre last week. Places for our weekly Thursday lunch meetings must be booked – existing members only – contact the Stroke Club
