Every year in May the Stroke Association campaigns to raise awareness of stroke and all those affected by it. By supporting #MakeMayPurple you can help #Changethestory of stroke survivors and help raise money for more research that will save lives.
We are also helping promote awareness amongst users with a series of displays in our reading room giving information from the history of stroke to the symptoms, effects, rehabilitation and prevention. However, if you can’t make it to the library it’s not a problem, we have a selection of printed books, audiovisuals and e-books on the subject that you can access from our online catalogue anytime anywhere.
Stroke can happen at any age and it’s more common than you think. So, let’s make May Purple for Stroke!
