Roadblock Run 10th September 2017
Earlier in 2017 Braemore staff voted to support The Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland charity by taking part in the Roadblock Run 2017 – a foamy, 7k fun run with obstacles.
The Chest, Heart & Stroke charity in Scotland provides care and support throughout Scotland for people affected by these conditions, as well as their families and other carers.
In the Lothians, last year CHSS helped 198 people to begin their rehabilitation journey after stroke. They supported 21 community groups, enabling their 791 members with chest, heart and stroke conditions to meet up, socialise and support each other. They distributed 34 personal support grants to individuals where their condition had resulted in financial hardship and their Advice Line (based in Edinburgh) answered 616 calls from people needing additional help, advice and charity.
