Way Ahead Group vital for local stroke survivors- Jo


Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire yesterday visited the Way Ahead Group, a local organisation for stroke victims.

Jo called in on the group’s open day where members took part in group physiotherapy then continued with individual therapy sessions or moved into groups to play games.

The Way Ahead Group is for people of all ages and faiths who are recovering after a stroke. The group meets weekly on Thursdays at 1:15 pm in the Main and Lesser Halls of Killermont Parish Church, Bearsden.

Commenting Jo said:

“It was lovely to drop in once again and have a cup of tea with the members, volunteers and supporters of the Way Ahead Group.

“This inspiring community resource has been around for 16 years and relies on the support of local companies, groups and individuals.

“To get involved contact either Mrs Anne Wightman at 0141 942 4052 or Mary Munro at 0141 942 7961″
