Stroke recovery is rooted in activity
We're offering free gardening materials to keep people active
Being stuck indoors is detrimental if you’ve had a stroke. With little cognitive stimulation and limited opportunities to exercise, too much recovery potential is being lost.
Gardening is a great activity to do in these circumstances, particularly as the weather brightens up. That’s why we’re having seed trays delivered to people that have had a stroke. Currently we’re only offering this service in West Yorkshire but we’re looking to expand.
We’ll deliver a pack that includes seeds, something to plant them in, compost and water bottles. The pack comes with a card showing how to sow the seeds in three simple steps. Fill out the form below if you’d like a seed tray sent to someone that you know who has suffered a stroke:
This initiative has been made possible thanks to the generosity of:
Sue Proctor Plants, Huddersfield
Greenscapes Nursery, Leeds
Earnshaws Fencing Centre, Midgely
What we're witnessing during this pandemic is horrific. Seeing how people band together in a time of need gives us hope. The applause goes not only to healthcare workers and emergency services, but to everyone that has made things a little easier with a small act of kindness.
And we can't forget Captain Tom Moore who has shown the world what is possible with a few metres of grass. We salute you sir.
