Stroke hobbies, a snapshot of the hobbies of stroke survivors to be hosted at the coming World Stroke Congress.

The Stroke Association in Crewe has teamed up with England Golf to provide golf courses for stroke survivors in Cheshire, UK. At the weekly sessions, held at Malkins Bank Golf Course in Sandbach, eight stroke survivors have access to an hour’s coaching session on a covered driving range. Hilary Belshaw, Information, Advice and Support Coordinator at the Stroke Association, said: “More people than ever before are surviving a stroke. But many stroke survivors tell us that after all the effort to save their lives they then feel isolated when they return home.


“The golf course provides an opportunity for stroke survivors to meet others who are also experiencing a life after stroke, benefit from exercise, build their confidence and enjoy learning new skills. We’re thrilled the first course has been so popular and have put on a second course due to the demand. So far 17 people have benefited from this activity.” 

 This course has been a great incentive to come and meet fellow stroke survivors and to appreciate how well we can all move on.”
