Frimley Park Hospital Certificate of Thanks

Mike said "It gives us the greatest pleasure to be able to support the Frimley Park Hospital Stroke Appeal".

During their tour the Lions learnt that Frimley Health Charity has already raised £671,000 towards the £1,070,000 goal. The plans are to build a purpose made building in an existing courtyard beside the Stroke Unit to house specialist rehabilitation facilities to help stroke victims along their long road to recovery. We are very grateful to the people of Farnborough for their generosity during the Motor Vehicle Show, together with the traders of Queensmead and Rushmoor Council for their support to help us reach this magnificent total".

Amongst these new facilities will be an outdoor space including a sensory area and everyday obstacles which most of us take for granted such as steps and gravel surfaces, all of which become new challenges for stroke victims as they overcome mobility issues.

The new build was due to start towards the end of 2019 to give the people of Surrey, the parts of Hampshire and Berkshire covered by Frimley Park Hospital an excellent rehabilitation facility.
