A STROKE support group is aiming to be picture perfect thanks to a police donation.

The South East Northumberland Stroke Support Group now has its own cameras and equipment donated by the Northumbria Police Charities Fund.

The group, which meets monthly at venues in Bedlington and Cramlington, gives opportunities to take part in a range of activities such as gentle exercise class, bingo and computer familiarisation courses.

It also hosts regular guest speakers who cover a range of topics to meet the different needs of people who have suffered from a stroke.

Northumberland area command charities trustee, Sarah Dodds, said: “The fund is delighted to help out the stroke support group who offer a chance for local people to meet others living with a stroke, as well as their carers.”

Group chairman Bill Wade thanked the fund.

He said: “This equipment will enable the group to set up a camera club for members.”

Northumbria Police Charities Fund helps individuals, organisations and good causes throughout the Northumbria Police area.
