A CHARITY that raises awareness and helps people suffering from strokes is set to host its spring fundraising fair.

Tendring Specialist Stroke Services (TSSS) The Stroke Charity is hosting its fair and the charity’s spring fairy will be making an appearance.

The fair will raise funds for the charity’s therapy work across Tendring and Colchester.

A spokeswoman for the charity said: “The Stroke Charity works with people who have had a stroke to support them with building confidence and acceptance following a stroke diagnosis.

“Experiencing a stroke has a huge impact on a person, and unseen symptoms that affect mood and cognition are often overlooked, stroke survivors can be left with a range of disabilities or health issues.
