Ant, a mate from work, is currently cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats. Which is an insane way to spend a fortnight’s break from work, but chapeau to him for it.
He’s raising money for The Stroke Association, and I can only echo what he says about the devestating effects a stroke can have on a family’s life, having seen it myself. A quarter of a million people are living with long-term disability as a result of stroke in the UK. The Stroke Association funds research into prevention, treatment and better methods of rehabilitation, and helps stroke patients and their families with the after-effects.
