Members of the North East Stroke Advisory Service came together for a special presentation at North East Scotland College recently.

The group, which was set up by Brenda Wallace and Wendy Mutch in January last year, delivered a presentation about the work of the service to an audience of around 25 people, which included college principal Paul Sherrington.

Founding member Brenda Wallace introduced the presentation by informing the audience about the effects of different types of strokes and aneurysms.

Members of the support group each delivered a section of the presentation on a range of issues, including stroke statistics and stroke recovery.

The audience were then shown a DVD which the group had made over recent months, which was followed by a question and answer session.

Deputy Principal Paul Sherringon congratulated the group on the work they have done on creating the DVD and presented members with certificates for their efforts.

The North East Stroke Advisory Service is open to people of all ages who have had a stroke or brain aneurysms as well as their families and carers.
