Thanks to the generosity of patients and visitors and local businesses who donated cakes and fantastic raffle prizes, our coffee morning raised £1,250 for the Stroke Association! Our special guest, Chloe Meadows from TOWIE, drew the raffle alongside Dr Malik and his team. With live music from singer Maureen Tarler, our visitors enjoyed a free cuppa, delicious cakes and a lot more. As well as having a great time, we hope all our visitors left the event more familiar with the warning signs of a stroke and understanding how they might reduce their chances of having one.
