Bowls Club put their best feet forward for stroke unit

Bowls Club stroke unit

Stroke unit patients at Southend Hospital are set to benefit from the latest donation made by Essex County Bowls Club, from Westcliff. 

The longstanding – and kneeling - supporters made their most recent donation of over £4,800 to benefit planned works on the stroke unit’s courtyard garden project.

The area will provide an outdoor area of peace for patients recovering following a stroke, whilst also serving as an ideal area for the rehabilitation process, building on each patient’s confidence and ability.

Joanne Lay, Clinical Team Lead for Stroke and Intermediate Care Therapy, said: “We are so thankful for the support provided by Essex County Bowls Club members. Through charitable funds, we have been able to implement many improvements to our stroke unit.

“This additional boost really will make such a difference in allowing us to provide an outdoor space for our patients to build upon their rehabilitation journey as we support them in transitioning from hospital to home.”

Current club president, Terry Davies, has made it his mission to provide as much support to the unit as he and his members possibly can.

The club is on a roll and this latest donation follows one of £1,360 made in 2021, helping make the  now complete stroke patients rehabilitation kitchen a reality.
