Say Aphasia has been a huge support to my family since my dad suffered a stroke a few years ago. Any donation you’re able to make, however small, will help the organisation continue it’s wonderful work. Thank you
Nearly a year ago I suffered 2 brain haemorrhages . As a result of my injury to the left side of my brain I also found myself dealing with aphasia. The support group in Hove has played a crucial role in my recuperation.
... I have witnessed the impact that not being able to effectively communicate can have on one's life...
Aphasia, a communication difficulty common after stroke or brain injury, affects over 350,000 people in the UK alone, making it difficult to comprehend language or to speak. Fern works in post-stroke aphasia research and has met dozens of wonderful people living with the condition. We want to raise money for an important cause, that helps to connect people to others going through similar life changing experiences and feel less alone by running fun, friendly social groups.
I am running Brighton half marathon in February 2023 to help raise awareness and money for Say Aphasia so they can continue the important work they do!
Volunteering for the Say Aphasia Woodingdean drop in group has given me a huge sense of pride. The bravery and determination of the group members is really humbling and inspires me to push my limits.
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.
