Baroness Brady, politician, businesswoman and star of The Apprentice, is launching a nation-wide search for inspiring stroke survivors, carers and volunteers to take part in the Stroke Association’s 2015 Life After Stroke Awards (LASA).
The Life After Stroke Awards, sponsored by the Toni & Guy Charitable Foundation, celebrate the courage of the 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK, and the dedication of thousands of carers and volunteers who support them.
It is a cause that is particularly important to Baroness Brady after she survived a brain aneurysm in 2006, which could have led to a stroke.
A long-term supporter of the charity, she said: “Stroke can strike at any age and it can be devastating, it is the leading cause of adult disability in the UK.
“The Stroke Association’s Life After Stroke Awards celebrate rebuilding your life and conquering stroke with courage, commitment and determination.
“If you know an inspiring stroke survivor, carer, volunteer or professional then nominate them today and give them the chance to be part of a fabulous celebration.”
There are several award categories and the closing date for nominations is January 30.
Winners are invited to attend a star-studded award ceremony at London’s Rosewood Hotel on June 25, 2015. Details of how to make your nomination are available at www.stroke.org.uk/lasa.
