A GROUP for stroke survivors has been presented with a £500 cheque.

The Dovercourt Stroke Group was given the money by the Grassroutes charity which supports causes in Tendring and Colchester.

An iPad and laptop have been purchased with the money and will help the members regain skills.

The iPad helps with skills such as memory and concentration while the laptop enables the group to learn new IT skills.

Anyone wanting to join the Dovercourt Stroke Group can call 01255815905.
