Stroke has a greater disability impact than any other medical condition. Every year an estimated 150,000 people in the UK have a stroke, and a quarter of a million people are living with long-term disability as a result of stroke in the UK. The Stroke Association is the only UK wide charity solely concerned with combating stroke in people of all ages.
“I know that I was just one in over 150,000 people who suffered a stroke last year. But I have been very fortunate with the support that my friends, family and The Stroke Association have given me which led to my successful recovery and now I would like to ensure as many people get the treatment and support that they need to be able to lead as normal a life as possible following their stroke.” Hilary Devey.Find Out More

A patron of the British Citizen Awards since its inception in 2014, Hilary has said of the organisation: “The British Citizen Awards are truly inspirational and I’m proud and privileged to support such a worthy initiative.

“It’s important to acknowledge our nation’s heroes, celebrating the commendable endeavours of those dedicated individuals whose efforts make a difference to the well-being of our communities.”Find Out More
