A special live music event is taking place in Ealing this summer to raise money for young stroke survivors in the UK.
On Thursday July 2, from 7pm, Different Folks for Different Strokes Live! will take place at the Ealing Club; the night will have a '60s Blues feel, with music ranging from garage to soul.
Tom Jenkins, a volunteer for the charity Different Strokes, said: "Following the onset of a heart condition I had a brain stem stroke in December 2013 whilst on the operating table undergoing an angiogram... With a lot of hard work and perseverance and help and support from Different Strokes I'm pretty much as back to normal as I'm going to get."
Different Strokes is the only charity in the UK providing care and support specifically for younger stroke survivors, run almost exclusively by stroke survivors and carers, so they can provide first-hand knowledge of the condition.
Tom said: "Stroke can hit anyone at any age, not just the over 60s, and that is something that Different Strokes strives to bring across.
"With that in mind I set about organising events to raise money for Different Strokes and to raise awareness of stroke in younger people."
All proceeds from the event will go towards raising vital funds for Different Strokes.
As well as DJs, special performers at the show will be: The Theme, The Get-Go, Doctor Bird, The Transients and more. Expect everything and anything at this jam-packed fundraising night!
