Celebrity Stylist recruits Xtra Factor presenter for stroke event

Celebrity Stylist recruits Xtra Factor presenter for stroke event
17th November 2010

Celebrity style expert Nick Ede is again holding a charity event on behalf of a stroke charity, this time assisted by Xtra Factor presenter Konnie Huq.

Other celebrities scheduled to appear at the event, which will raise money for the Stroke Association, are Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, EastEnders actress Patsy Palmer and film star Jaime Winstone, among others.

Mr Ede said that the charity was one which was very close to his heart, as more needs to be done to raise awareness of the dangers of stroke and the cost of stroke care and support services.

The stylist lost his mother to a stroke some time ago, and has campaigned for the charity in recent years.

"I hope that the party will be a memorable night for everyone who comes but, most crucially, together we raise thousands of pounds for the Stroke Association," he said.

Scientists in Glasgow recently began the world's first trial of a stem cell treatment for stroke patients, to try and repair the damage done after a stroke occurs.
