The year-long partnership between the charities – including Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke (NICHS) and England’s Different Strokes – and Scotmid aims to not only raise a substantial amount of funding for our rehabilitation services but also to increase awareness and make sure that people struggling with stroke know where to turn to for support.
Our rehabilitation support workers and volunteers help people, who have survived a stroke, to achieve the things that are important to them, so that while their life will never be the same again, it will still be worth living.
Staff across Scotmid’s food stores, Semichem stores, Scotmid Funerals and Lakes & Dales stores in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Northern England will take part in various fundraising activities including bake sales, sponsored runs, zip slides, triathlons and much more to support the charities.
“We’re absolutely delighted to have been chosen as Scotmid’s Charity of the Year! The new partnership will help thousands of stroke survivors and their families in Scotland rebuild their lives.
Throughout the year Scotmid will be raising money to fund our vital Rehabilitation Support Services. Our services support people after a stroke to regain their confidence, achieve their personal goals and get back to doing the things they love. We are really looking forward to working together to help ensure there is no life half lived in Scotland!”
“We are really excited to announce our new Charity of the Year partnership with Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland. The target of this year’s partnership will be to raise money to fund the charity’s vital Rehabilitation Support Services.”
“This is a cause that strongly resonates with our staff, members and customers because one in five people in the communities we serve will be affected by chest, heart or stroke conditions.”
“Our core purpose is to serve our communities and to improve people’s everyday lives, so the partnership is an excellent fit. Our aim during this charity partnership will be to raise the funding to help people, who have suffered from a stroke, to both survive and thrive.”
