THEY may have recently been handed a national award, but members of a Burton stroke club are not resting on their laurels.

Burton and District Stroke Club chairman Colin Williams and his family were camped out in Coopers Square as they aimed to spread the word to shoppers.

After being recently named stroke club of the year, organisers now want to increase numbers attending meetings held fortnightly at Henhurst Hill Social Club.

The meetings allow stroke victims and their carers or partners to speak with people in a similar situation, while the group also organises trips.

Mr Williams said: "We are there to give a social life to stroke victims.

"When you have had a stroke it can feel like your life has ended. We are there to try to prove otherwise.

"We just want people to know who we are and what we do."

The group was 'honoured' after being recognised with a Life After Stroke Award in June, handed to them by 'How Clean is Your House?' star Kim Woodburn (inset).

More information is available from Mr Williams on 07944 282126.
