During May Cornwall’s dedicated Community Stroke Service took part in a series of walks, runs and cycles to ‘Make May Purple’ for the Stroke Association’s month-long awareness campaign.
Many conquered the Camel Trail, with runs, walks and cycles between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow, and the Great Flat Lode in Carn Brea. Teams asked for everyone from the public to other nursing staff to join them.
Stroke Teams raised further awareness by contributing miles with patients and representatives on the Woodfield Rehabilitation Stroke Unit by cycling and walking a total of 131.4 miles.
Additionally, the Neuro Rehab Team together with Early Support Discharge for Stroke had a cake trolley at Camborne Redruth Community Hospital which rose over £100 for the Stroke Association.
