St Albans stroke survivor Harvey Astell is holding a charity event in September to raise money for the Stroke Association.

The event is going to be held at the London Road Club on Saturday, September 1 at 6.30pm.

It will include a raffle, bouncy castle, face-painting, live music and a light buffet.

Harvey, from Shirley Road, suffered his stroke while driving in August 2017 and had to undergo a lengthy recovery at the stroke unit at Watford General Hospital, where he suffered a further heart attack.

His wife Nicky said: “He has been through hell and back.”

Since his recovery with the help of the Stroke Association, Harvey has began to visit other stroke victims in hospital to talk about his experiences.

Tickets to the event are £5 and can be organised by calling Nicky Astell on 07961 415 176.
