Many organisations are doing a lot for the Stroke Association. Among them is online bingo operator Buzz Bingo, which has announced a three-year partnership with the Association.

Before finalising the deal, they conducted several research studies to affirm the social stigma faced by people with cerebrovascular disease.

Are Stroke Survivors Really Socially Isolated?

Research and studies have shown that:

  • 79% of stroke survivors give up on their hobbies post recovery
  • 83% spend significantly lesser time on activities they love
  • 73% spend less to no time socialising with friends and family after recovery

These deductions alone are enough to back up the claim that stroke survivors don’t have the same social life after recovery. And that is what Buzz Bingo aims to combat over this partnership period.

What Are The Objectives Of This Partnership?

Buzz Bingo, in partnership with the Stroke Association, has released its objectives and how they aim to help stroke victims. Let’s consider how they map out their plans.

Fundraising Bingo Events For Stroke Association

We are constantly reminded that bingo is a great and 100% transparent fundraising activity and Buzz Bingo has planned to dedicate competitions to the Stroke Association. These donations are vital and would be a great addition to stroke survivors and those in the recovery phase.

Buzz Bingo also highlights that everything would be done with genuine intentions towards the stroke community, hence, the assurance of 100% transparency.

Exclusive Competitions

Many stroke survivors feel left out and that nullifies their intentions to participate in any competition or other public events. But this partnership aims to unite the community and organize competitions to remind them that they still matter.

Apart from the fundraising events, these competitions will be open to stroke survivors only. That way, they feel like everyone is on a level ground which in turn, provides a perfect competitive platform.

Raising Awareness

Raising awareness is another major objective of this partnership. It is very essential because the societal construct is not very favorable for stroke survivors. Many people see them as outcasts and that has to change. With this partnership, the awareness will spread to both local and modern communities at large, showing them that these survivors are also a key part of society.

The goal is to raise over £200,000 for the Stroke Association, and with the plan that is drawn up, it looks very feasible. This project could be a life-changer for many survivors.
