Inspirational work created by stroke survivors from West Norfolk will be on sale at Hunstanton Methodist Church next month.

The artwork was produced by two groups of stroke survivors who attended art therapy workshops set up by the Stroke Association, in Hunstanton and Lynn.

Stroke survivors from the Coastal Stroke Support and Carers Group and West Norfolk Health and Wellbeing Stroke Group attended the workshops.

Sybil Bloodworth, from Lynn, had a stroke last October at the age of 79. She said: “It’s been marvellous to join the art groups. I never bothered with art before I had a stroke. Coming to the group makes my life happy.”

The exhibition on August 19 and 20 has been organised by local artist, Stephen Martyn, and Stroke Association volunteer and stroke survivor, Al Ware.

Local residents can not only view the artwork but also purchase a calendar of the pieces, with funds going towards the Stroke Association and future workshops.
