Andrew Marr pledges support for stroke awards

Journalist, author and political commentator Andrew Marr has shown his support for the search for stroke survivors to enter the Life After Stroke Awards 2015.

Hosted by the Stroke Association, the awards recognise the achievements of everyone affected by the condition, including survivors, carers, volunteers, stroke clubs and health professionals.

"These awards pay tribute to the character, guts and determination of extraordinary people who have come through the devastating consequences of a stroke," Mr Marr remarked.

He encouraged those who know of people who have dealt with the consequences of a stroke and deserve recognition to nominate them for the awards.

Mr Marr had a stroke in January 2013 and was in hospital for two months. He returned to presenting The Andrew Marr Show on September 1st 2013.

Nominations for the awards are open until January 30th, 2015. Winners will be invited to the awards ceremony on June 25th, 2015, at the Rosewood Hotel in London.
