Young people aged between 11 and 15 from the school in Forest Lane played for around 45 minutes for the Newham Stroke Club at the Newham Community Resource Centre on Chargeable Lane, Plaistow, on Tuesday (July 23).

The club was started by Abdul Shakoor in 2005 after he suffered a stroke in 2001 to promote the welfare and interests of people who have had strokes and their family carers.

They meet on Mondays 2pm to 5pm, Wednesdays 1pm to 5pm and the first and third Saturdays of the month at 10.30pm to 12pm.
