What is PROJECT 2021: in brief...
On Friday 13th December 2019, I suffered a very severe stroke; by the time I reached the hospital, I was completely paralyzed down one side, was suffering from speech loss and many other symptoms associated with strokes. Luckily, I had been in good health up until then and was treated very quickly by fantastic doctors and nurses. I was able to eventually return home on Christmas eve, just in time for a very different Christmas. Despite this, there is still a long journey to conquer to be fully rehabilitated.
I began my rehabilitation journey by improving my speech, singing, walking, motor control and general physical strength. However, my rehabilitation has not been easy due to extreme fatigue which has made improving on my walking incredibly hard. I started walking laps around my garden to help improve movement when I realized that, while I was helping myself, I could help others too.
My first project was PROJECT 2020: to support the music at Southwell Minster, you can find out more about its success here.
Buoyed by the success of my last project I have taken on PROJECT 2021: to raise desperately needed funds for the Comprehensive Stroke Centre at Salford Royal Hospital (through the NorthCare Charity Registration No. 1049226 which was formerly know as the Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust) who were completely instrumental in saving my life and giving the greatest chance of the best possible recovery following my stroke in 2019. So as with my last project I have decided to help the Stroke Centre by walking anther two marathons around my own garden. I will never be able to express my gratitude to all the staff at Salford Royal Hospital for their kindness and skills, but I hope you will be generous in helping me go a little way by supporting PROJECT 2021:
I have set a target of £2,500 that I want to raise in support of the Comprehensive Stroke Centre at Salford Royal Hospital.
I think of it this way:
If only 250 households could donate £10 each that would achieve our target of £2,500.
You don't have to give £10 as every £1 counts, just spread the word - the more households donate the better.
Please support my efforts and let us help other stroke survivors get the best possible care!
