A support group for stroke survivors has been given £1,000 to buy new kitchen equipment.

The Five Towns Stroke Club, based at the Hemsworth Miners’ Social Club, received the cash from Wakefield District Housing (WDH). The club supports people in Hemsworth, South Elmsall, Normanton, South Kirkby and Fitzwilliam.

The kitchen - which is also used by other local community groups and charities - now has a new cooker, dishwasher, fridge and freezer.
