Karen Taylor from West Hertfordshire and her friends know how to throw a party… They add a philanthropic edge by selecting a charity to benefit from these events. They hire a hall, deck it out to the nines and dance the night away. We were delighted that they choose Different Strokes as the beneficiary of their September soiree, Karen’s friend is a younger stroke survivor has used our services in the past and found this support useful at a difficult time. Karen got in touch after the event and said:
“We had a very successful night on Friday and we are doing a final count and collecting in the last few donations. It looks like we made about £3200 which we are very happy with and hope this will be useful to the charity.”
The final count is now in and is an AMAZING £3255 This will make a real difference to the lives of younger stroke survivors across the UK and will be used to fund new exercise and support groups and our information packs.
We want to extend a huge thank you to Karen and her friends!
