Rita Bateson

Secretary and Founder Member

I joined the group at its inception in 2012 and volunteered my services as Secretary. My partner, Richard, had his stroke in 2011 and we needed somewhere to go for support, information and to meet and socialise with other people in a similar situation as our own. The Freedom Stroke Group meets these needs and through them we have gained many good friends who all support each other.

Cheryl Rickles

Treasurer and Founder Member

My husband Alan had a stroke in August 1994 and I am his carer. Due to the Freedom Stroke Club we have made lots of new friends. I also organize the speakers, day trips and meals out such as Christmas Lunch, which are always friendly and fun.
