A Spalding couple have celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary by raising over £650 for the Stroke Association. Shirley and Albert Storey, both 80, invited guests at their 50th anniversary party to donate money to the charity, as their son Chris had a stroke at the age of 47 in May 2015. Chris was supported by the Stroke Association throughout his recovery, initially while he was living in Leeds and then in Lincolnshire when he returned home.
Shirley said: “Chris had a major stroke which led to a devastating level of disability. We thought he might never be able to do simple things again but he’s astonished everyone with his recovery and returned to work in December.”
Shirley and Albert celebrated their wedding anniversary and both their 80th birthdays at Weston Village Hall, where they were joined by around 65 family and friends.
