Arts and craft sessions to be held in Lynn will help people recovering from a stroke to relearn skills, grow in confidence and make new friends, according to the West Norfolk service of the Stroke Association.

The sessions, which will run from at Gaywood Church Hall, have been made possible by a £2,000 grant from Care UK’s Wellbeing Foundation. The grant, which will support the sessions for a year, covers venue hire, teachers’ fees and materials.

Gemma Smith, communication and long term support co-ordinator for the Stroke Association in West Norfolk, said: “We are very grateful to Care UK’s Wellbeing Foundation for the grant. The sessions will prove invaluable to people recovering from a stroke.”
