Success After Stroke has two main biennial fundraising events. The Carol Service, held at the Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford and the BrushStroke art exhibition held at St. Peter’s Church, Market Hill, Sudbury.
In addition, we hold smaller events from time to time, often inspired by the members, their families and our volunteers. Examples include; climbing Mount Kenya, a charity football match, fun runs and the proceeds from refreshments at an open garden event.
Geoff, a member of Success After Stroke, and his wife Sue recently opened their garden in Lavenham for the National Open Garden Scheme. Proceeds from the sale of refreshments, in excess of £400.00, have been donated to Success After Stroke. The weather was kind and the garden beautiful, Geoff and Sue clearly put in a great deal of hard work. A huge thank you to both Geoff and Sue, together the band of volunteers who baked, sold refreshments, cleared tables and washed-up. Also, to everyone who came along and made the day so successful.
Carol Service, Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford
In December 2016, Success After Stroke held its popular biennial fundraising event, Carols by Candlelight. The event was, as usual, a sell-out and the audience was captivated by music from the Ely Cathedral Choir, readings and poems.
Success After Stroke would like to thank The Rev’d Matthew Lawson and Patrick and Jane Kohler of The Holy Trinity Church, all those who gave up their time, sponsored pages in the programme, bought tickets or who donated on the evening to make this a remarkably successful event. Thank you.
The next Carol Service will be held in December 2018.
BrushStroke Art Exhibition
Our third BrushStroke Art Exhibition was held at St. Peter’s Church, Sudbury between the 29th February and 10th March, 2016. It was a huge success and we would like to thank the organising committee, volunteers and all who worked tirelessly to produce such an amazing show. We would also like to thank all the artists, including members, who provided, and in some cases donated, their work to the exhibition.
The next BrushStroke exhibition will be held in the Spring of 2018.
