A club that offers support to stroke survivors and their carers needs your votes to be in with the chance of bagging £3,000.

Royston Speak Out Stroke Club is in the running for the cash prize offered through the Lloyds Bank Community Fund, which gives grants to good causes.

The volunteer-run stroke group, which meets weekly on Wednesday mornings at The Barn in Upper Kings Street, helps those suffering from aphasia – a communication disability affecting speech, understanding, reading and writing.

Club chairman Franklyn Drake said: “This will make a huge difference to our club by enabling us to make a difference to the lives of our members, and future members. Please vote for us.”

People can cast their votes in a number of ways – online at, by texting VOTE RHY to 61119, via Twitter by tweeting #CommFund RHY or at the Royston branch of Lloyds Bank.
