No5 teams up with Medical Accident Group to launch stroke awareness campaign

Fri, 26 Nov 2021

No5 Barristers’ Chambers, in partnership with Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ Medical Accident Group, is launching a campaign to raise awareness and money for the charity Stroke Association.

It follows the experience of one of its members, Matthew Brunning, who suffered a stroke at his home in November 2020, resulting in months of rehabilitation treatment involving occupational and speech therapy, as well as physiotherapy to regain motor functions.

The campaign will see a number of events taking place over the next 12 months, starting with a series of fun weekly challenges in December. Spanning the different aspects of rehabilitation therapies, participants will be invited to share images and videos of themselves taking part in tongue twisters (speech therapy), juggling (occupational therapy) and balancing exercises (physiotherapy).

Details of the challenges will be posted on the firm’s social media channels each week, and everyone involved is encouraged to make a donation to the Stroke Association.
