As a speech and language therapy student I’m looking to help however I can to raise money for amazing charities like Say Aphasia.
This charity helped someone close to me after they suffered a stroke just before lockdown. At such a young age, it was incredibly difficult for them to find people to talk to about what happened and also people who could relate to them. Say Aphasia helped bridge that gap.
I am a Speech and Language Therapist in training and also a half-marathon novice! I am learning about aphasia and how it impacts people’s daily lives and so I have come to understand the importance of fundraising for support and research - and want to do my bit to help!
I am fundraising for Say Aphasia to raise awareness about aphasia and generate donations towards their great work.
We are trying to raise funds for the Say Aphasia charity so that people with aphasia and their families and carers can continue to benefit from the support that the charity offers through its online and drop in groups.
I’m running Chester Marathon, aka 26.2 miles of torture for Say Aphasia
Say Aphasia is an important part of people’s recovery from a brain injury. Colin and his gang have made a amazing impact on people’s lives. This was done by independently setting up say aphasia support group in Hove.
Say Aphasia runs a supportive, local drop-in social group which dad joined when he moved to Hove last year. Aphasia is still a relatively unknown condition which can be very lonely and Say Aphasia makes a real difference to people living with Aphasia.
In the early period of learning to deal with the effects of his stroke Keith attended a support group which he found a safe, friendly & non judgemental place where he gained help, confidence & support from other people who understood what he was experiencing.
A great small charity working tirelessly to raise funds and awareness for this condition
