Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland and the Stroke Association have teamed up to help people in Porthcawl take a moment and get their blood pressure tested.

They will be hosting free blood pressure tests at Trinity Church, Porthcawl on April 30 (from 10am to 4pm) to raise awareness of the link between high blood pressure and stroke.

Over half of all strokes can be caused by high blood pressure. As well as having a blood pressure check, residents will also receive advice on steps to keep it under control and reduce their stroke risk.

The test takes a moment to do and potentially, it could save your life.

Last year Rotary held 1,680 events around the country and this year they are keen to reach even more people.
