10:00am Wednesday 11th September 2013 in News
A GROUP of stroke victims will push themselves to the limit when they set out on a sponsored walk in Dovercourt.
Ten survivors will try to complete a mile to raise cash for Tendring Specialist Stroke Services.
Activities co-ordinator Helen McCrea says it will be tough task for the team, who are all aged over 60.
"It would take you or me five minutes but for them it's a big challenge," she said.
The walk starts at the West End Lane car park at 2pm on September 25 and finishes at the High Lighthouse. To sponsor the team call 01255 815905.
