A SEARCH is underway for unsung heroes whose lives have been affected by stroke.

The Life After Stroke Awards aim to celebrate the achievements of people who have had to deal with a life-changing illness.

Relatives, friends and carers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty can also be nominated.

The closing date is Friday, May 24, with the winners being announced at a glitzy bash in London.
