Customers at a Lichfield garden centre are being asked to support a stroke charity.

Dobbies is offering shoppers the chance to donate the price of their cup of tea to the Stroke Association to mark World Stroke Day today (29th October).

As part of the link-up, the garden centre chain has also created online videos to showcase how gardening can help stroke survivors in their recovery.

Andrew Cook, executive director at the Stroke Association, said:

“Gardening has many benefits for people rebuilding their lives after stroke and we’re very grateful for Dobbies’ ongoing support.

“The money donated by their generous customers on World Stroke Day will help us offer the hope and support people need to put their lives back together again.”
