Entries sought for awards

THE STROKE Association is looking for people to submit nominations for the Life After Stroke Awards before the closing date next month.

With more than 113,000 people in Scotland living with the effects of stroke, the charity is seeking nominations to honour the stroke survivors, carers, organisations or groups who have shown dedication, determination and courage in the world of stroke. The ceremony will take place at London’s Dorchester Hotel on June 26. The nine categories include Adult Courage, Creative Arts and Fund-raiser of the Year. Nominations close on Friday, March 1.

Angela Macleod from the Stroke Association said; “This is the chance to shine the spotlight on stroke survivors, their carers and professionals working in the world of stroke to celebrate some of the amazing achievements made.”

Nominations can be made online at www.stroke.org.uk/LASA, while forms can be obtained by calling 0207 566 1540 or e-mailing lasa@stroke.org.uk.
