Ro­tar­i­ans lead life-sav­ing event

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

A GROUP has hosted its an­nual Stroke Aware­ness Day event in a bid to save lives.

The mem­bers of the Ro­tary Club of Che­sham have sup­ported the Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion in the com­mu­nity for more than a decade, pre­dom­i­nantly through pro­mot­ing Stroke Aware­ness Day, now known as Know Your Blood Pres­sure.

Ro­tary Club of Che­sham He­len Sal­is­bury started the event at the United Re­formed Church in The Broad­way, Che­sham, on Satur­day, April 18 by hav­ing her blood pres­sure taken by lo­cal doc­tors and nurses.

At the event, or­gan­ised by Dr Alan Mor­ris, mem­bers of the public were in­vited in to have their blood pres­sure taken and a read­ing done free of charge.

Some­times peo­ple are then re­ferred to their GP for a fur­ther check and or treat­ment as ap­pro­pri­ate.

Mrs Sal­is­bury added: “Nearly ev­ery year we Mem­bers of Che­sham Ro­tary Club wel­comed peo­ple to the Stroke Aware­ness Day have taken part we have saved lives and Ro­tary Club of Che­sham is pleased to be help­ing the com­mu­nity in this way.”
