Yesterday I helped with Bury Rotary Club’s Stroke Awareness Day at the Millgate centre in Bury town centre.
One of the principal causes of strokes is high blood pressure and yesterday anyone could have a free blood pressure check and we were giving out lots of helpful information both on how to try and avoid having a stroke and also whay to do if someone you are with suffers from a stroke.
We were visited by the Mayor and Mayoress of Bury who set a good example by both having their blood pressure tested. I had mine tested too and I am pleased to report it was satisfactory!
