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.”
