The Catenian Association Charity of the Year
The Catenian Association is an international body of Roman Catholic laymen who support each other, the Church, young people and those in need. With over 70 members based at St Dunstan's Church, the local Woking & District Circle recently raised £3,550 for Woking Strokeability.
Presenting the cheque to Strokeabilty Chairman Malcolm Head, Immediate Past President Michael Ryan said, "Woking Strokeability is a wonderful community asset and I was delighted to nominate them as my Presidential Charity for 2017/18." Malcolm Head replied, "At Woking Strokeability, we deal with the aftermath of an attack. There are no paid officials, merely survivors and carers helping each other to try and regain a normal life. Whether that attack is immediately life threatening or whether it is just a T.I.A., whether the struggle to recover takes the rest of your days following permanent damage or less than a few months after a relatively mild episode, either the physical handicap or the psychological worry never goes away completely. The fight is, however, made a little easier in company with friends who appreciate the problem."
This donation from Woking Catenians will help secure our funding. It will ensure that we can continue helping our members improve their strength and movement and get on with life by providing social, emotional and practical support in a friendly environment.
