Stroke Awareness Day Saturday 7th April

FREE Blood Pressure Testing

It’s that time of year again when the Rotary Club of Flitwick Vale organise this very important event. Based in our Learning Zone, volunteers will be on hand to offer FREE blood pressure testing to our customers and staff.  Last year, we had 134 people come along for testing, 15 of those were advised to see their GP within 2 months and 2 people were given an urgent referral to seek medical advice! Those 2 people were completely unaware of just how high their risk of a stroke was so as long as they followed the advice they were given, we may well have helped save their life! As for the 117 people who were given the all clear, they went on to enjoy their visit to the Garden Centre.  So please come along and attend this very worthwhile event.
