Residents, staff & visitors of Westgate House supported fellow care staff member, Anita Mbewe, with raising money for the Make May Purple Stroke Association appeal on behalf of her father, Isaac Mbewe, and all stroke survivors, by holding a 'Sip for Stroke' cake sale, which raised £245.72.
Isaac is a retired engineer who, after having worked hard all his life, indulged his passion for farming by relocating to a farm. Unfortunately, Isaac suffered multiple strokes in 2016, losing his ability to walk and talk. He faced many physical and emotional challenges, as he was unable to do all the things that he once was able to do for himself.
Isaac is a greatly loved and respected member of his family, who fully support him. Anita, his daughter, decided to raise money for Make May Purple for her father and all who live with the effects of having a stroke. General Manager, Frances Nri, was very happy to support the cause.
