STAFFORD folk can join in the 35th anniversary celebrations of the Stafford and District Stroke Club this weekend.

There will be a fun fair and tombola among the entertainment in Market Square from 9am to 4pm on Saturday.

The Mayor of Stafford Borough, Councillor Ray Sutherland will also be at the event.

Club chairman Geoff Brookes said: “We would love to see as many people as possible. It will be a real celebration.”

The group has 28 members and is run with the help of 14 volunteers each Tuesday morning at Thirlmere Way Day Centre.

It provides those who have suffered a stroke a chance to talk to others in a similar situation, take part in quizzes and games and do activities such as painting and making cards, as well as enjoying lunch and days out.

Earlier this year members launched a £35,000 fund-raising campaign to mark the anniversary milestone and to buy a minibus so more events and services can be provided.
