Stroke awards

NOMINATIONS are now open to reward the courage and dedication of stroke survivors and carers.

The Stroke Association is calling for entries to its 20th annual Life After Stroke Awards (LASA).

The gongs aim to celebrate and recognise the courage, determination and achievements of stroke survivors across the UK, as well as mark the commitment and compassion of carers, volunteers, stroke groups and professionals.

Finalists will be invited to a star-studded ceremony in June at London’s Dorchester Hotel, and each award is presented by a celebrity.

To nominate someone visit or call 01527 908911. The deadline is Friday, February 24.
