(East Anglian) – Former East Bergholt teacher who made miracle recovery from stroke raises thousands for Headway
Wayne Chivers suffered a stroke 12 years ago and doctors said he would struggle to walk and talk again, but the former teacher has made a miraculous recovery and has raised thousands for Headway by walking a 5K.
Mr Chivers, who lives in Langham, is remembered by many students as a science teacher at East Bergholt High School where he worked for 20 years, going on to become head of year for a decade.
The now 68-year-old was a keen sportsman and ran four London Marathons, raising money for Great Ormond St Children’s Hospital – in fact the doctors said it was his health which aided his incredible recovery over the years. CONTINUE
