It’s always time for tea with the Stroke Team

Sip for Stroke event

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Stroke Team raised a cuppa and a cake to toast two charities at a fundraising coffee morning.

The team invited colleagues, friends and family to their Sip for Stroke Coffee Morning at Park Rehabilitation Centre in Rotherham to raise money for the Stroke Association and the Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity.

More than 50 people tucked into cream cakes, buns and biscuits at the event, raising £587 for both charities during the Stroke Association’s national campaign ‘Make May Purple for Stroke.’

Event organiser Gemma Hayden, Team Leader, Rotherham Stroke Rehabilitation Team, said: “Make May Purple for Stroke is such an important month for the Stroke Team because it gives us the chance to raise awareness of stroke and showcase the work of our amazing team. We also wanted to play our part in boosting the Trust’s charity and are thrilled our coffee morning went so well.

“There was a great atmosphere at the event and we had so many tasty treats to tempt people. Thank you to everyone who baked, donated prizes for our raffle, gave us goodies or who came along to help us raise so much for our favourite charities.”

The event was supported by local Rotherham businesses such as 450 Above, Wickerlsey Deli, Taste Catering, Morrison’s, Tesco and Asda who all donated cookies and cakes. Gift vouchers were also donated to a raffle by Aston Hall, Love Hair Salon and the Little Boutique Hair and Beauty.

The money raised for the Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity will help improve the experience patients of all ages have of being cared for at Rotherham Hospital and in the community. The charity is currently raising money to fund a fourth Purple Butterfly room at Rotherham Hospital. The rooms cost more than £75,000 to install and provide privacy, dignity and space for patients nearing the end of their life, as well as their families.

Louise Knight, Community and Events Fundraising Manager at the Stroke Association, added: “We’re incredibly grateful to Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Stroke Team for all their support throughout Make May Purple and helping to put the spotlight on stroke. Without the efforts of fundraisers, we wouldn’t be able to support the 112,300 people in Yorkshire and Humber who are currently living with the devastating effects of stroke, as well as their families and carers.”
