A Moray group which helps people make the most of their lives, despite suffering the effects of a stroke, has moved to a new home.
The Elgin Stroke Friends was launched at the start of 2015, with only five members taking part in weekly gatherings at the town’s Resource Centre.
But with 40 members now, the group has relocated its meetings to the Elgin and Forres Free Church on South Street.
Organiser Pringle George described the shift as a milestone moment for the outfit as it looks to attract more members.
Mrs George said: “We have people from all over Moray but we are always looking to get more involved, especially now that we have this new lease of life.
“The new building allows us to bring in more people and perform activities we previously couldn’t.”
The church also benefits from the arrangement, as Elgin Stroke Friends makes a weekly donation in exchange for using it.
The group celebrated the recent move with a singing session yesterday, which featured Scottish standards such as Loch Lomond and The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen.
Mrs George said activities such as singing and exercise classes would not have been possible in the charity’s previous home.
And the Portgordon resident issued an appeal for volunteers to help out with the charity’s meetings and outings by pushing wheelchairs and lending a helping hand to more vulnerable members.
