KNOW YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE DAY
THIS FREE SERVICE COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.
On Saturday the 22nd April, between 10am and 4pm in St Andrews Church Hall, Chase Side, near ASDA, Southgate Rotary Club will be offering FREE BLOOD PRESSURE checks.
The checks are painless, take about 5 minutes and are carried out by trained professionals.
Figures show that there are an estimated 16 million people living in the UK with high blood pressure, however as many as five million of these remain untreated.
With over 50% of strokes caused by high blood pressure, this is an alarming statistic and one that both Rotary and The Stroke Association are fighting to change.
Last year saw over 400 Rotary clubs take part in the initiative where 40,000 people were checked, approximately one seventh of whom were found to have high blood pressure.
So put in your diary and come along for a free check, it could save your life.
We meet on Mondays at 12.30 (No meeting on Bank Holiday or 5th Monday in any month.) Jolly Farmers, 2 Enfield Road, Enfield, EN2 7QS tel: 020 8363 1917
