Man who suffered 'catastrophic' stroke set to take on Parish Walk

Iain spent twelve weeks in hospital early last year

One of over 1,200 people taking on the Parish Walk this weekend is Manx resident Iain Wrigley.

Whilst attending a funeral in Wales in February 2023, he suffered a catastrophic stroke which left him unable to walk or talk.

He spent twelve weeks in hospital, undergoing months of intense physiotherapy and rehabilitation.

Seventeen months on he's back on the Island and is hoping to get to Peel in this weekend's event.

'Don't give up, whatever you do.' - Iain Wrigley
