Severe stroke survivor makes model recovery

When stroke attacked Arthur Pickering, aged just 58, he thought he would spend the rest of his life in a care home.

And no wonder.

Stroke is the UK’s leading cause of severe adult disability, as well as our third biggest killer.

But then, Arthur struck back.

With the help and care of the Stroke Association, he went from being semi-paralysed,

speechless, and unable to grip a tennis ball, to building a devilishly detailed 4’ 6” monster model of the world’s biggest ferry.

Then he sailed away with ￿rst prize at the Blackpool Model Boat Show.

Helping people like Arthur is the work of the Stroke Association and the very best way you can help us strike back against stroke is to leave us a gift in your Will.
