Have your say

We would like to thank the relatives and friends of the late Margaret Hill for their kind donations to Alnwick Stroke Club of £355 in memory of Margaret.

The club was started in February 1979 by the then WRVS and since then has met in Alnwick once a week for anyone who has suffered a stroke and lives in North Northumberland.

It is thanks to the foresight of those original RVS ladies – Margaret Hill, Annice Waddell, Joan Pringle and Mig Slater – that the club has kept going for more than 36 years.

At present we have a full membership of 17, who travel from Belford, Seahouses, Amble, Alnmouth, Longhoughton, Shilbottle and Alnwick, and nine unpaid RVS volunteers.

At the end of the 2015-16 financial year on March 31 we had our first deficit, amounting to £1,900, so Margaret’s friends’ donations are more than welcome.

George Stokoe,

Chairman RVS Alnwick Stroke Club
