This World Stroke Day, garden centre chain Dobbies is inviting customers to make a donation to the Stroke Association.
Customers can donate the price of their cup of tea to Stroke Association, with 100% of the funds going directly to helping people rebuild their lives after stroke.
Graeme Jenkins, CEO at Dobbies, says: “We’re proud to be supporting the Stroke Association with our ongoing partnership. The charity provides specialist support to make sure people affected by stroke get the best care possible, and we’re highlighting World Stroke Day as an opportunity to raise vital funds and awareness for this important cause.”
Andrew Cook, executive director at the Stroke Association, said: “Gardening has many benefits for people rebuilding their lives after stroke and we’re very grateful for Dobbies’ ongoing support. The money donated by their generous customers on World Stroke Day will help us offer the hope and support people need to put their lives back together again.”
With gardening providing a number of benefits to stroke survivors, having positive impacts on both physical and emotional recovery, Dobbies will be continuing its ongoing support for Stroke Association by providing further how to videos and content for My Stroke Guide.
