Stroke Association

Alison Brown, who works in our Commercial Department here at North Ainley Solicitors, has now successfully completed all sections of her training to become an Ambassador for the Stroke Association.

Having experienced a trauma stroke herself in February 2017 after which she could not walk or lift her head, Alison now strives to help people to ‘put the word out’ to raise awareness regarding stroke prevention.  With her knowledge of ‘life after stroke’ recovery, Alison seeks to raise awareness with young doctors, GPs and ambulance staff regarding the effects of a stroke on younger people, and also raise funds for the Stroke Association to help them carry on providing their excellent services.

Alison understands the strains a stroke can have on relationships, friends or close family and how this can affect people’s future plans.  Her first hand knowledge helps her to appreciate the effort people have to go through and sympathise with the difficulties.

As an involved Ambassador, Alison gives talks to companies and organisations who have kindly chosen the Stroke Association as their ‘charity of the year’.  She has also been asked to present a ‘fundraiser of the year’ award at The Well Pharmacy annual dinner which was held last nigh at the Imperial War Museum North, an invitation which she was both pleased and honoured to accept.strokeAssocLogo-20180830120222642

Next year, Alison is taking on the challenge of the 10K Resolution Run for the Stroke Association.  Last year she walked the 5K route but is hoping to run the full distance next time around.  This is another goal and step for her to achieve in her recovery and her determination is clear to see.

We would like to congratulate Alison on behalf of North Ainley for her dedication to such a good cause.  If you would like to donate to Alison’s 10k, her Just Giving Page is:
