Hats 4 Headway 2018

Wednesday, May 02, 2018

Hats for Headway is great way to raise awareness of the work Headway Shropshire does in our annual celebration.

The idea is very simple, all we ask you to do is wear a hat on 18th May to show your support.  We would encourage you to wear a hat that is crazy and bizarre but this is not compulsory, we just want you to have fun.

Ask all your colleagues, friends and family to wear a hat for the day to raise awareness and donate £1 to Headway Shropshire

Why not have a royal theme with the Wedding of Harry and Megan being on the following day



It would be great if you can share your phots on social media to show your support for the work our team does.

Carers Support Group

Dates for your diary 2018

 

Headway Shropshire has grown to such an extent in recent years. With this in mind the need for carers support, information and guidance is much greater. We at Headway Shropshire would like to welcome you to join our carers group which is held at Headway Shropshire on dates stated below.

The effects of Acquired Brain Injury are so wide, so unique and also often invisible that many carers, family members and friends find it difficult to get the support they need. What Carers have in common with each other is the need to share stories and know that people really listen and understand. Our carers group is to meet other people in the same situation, to value each other’s ideas and experiences, to have a break and to get practical information.

Headway Shropshire Winter Fair

Monday, November 27, 2017



Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Winter Fair at Headway Shropshire.  We decided to move the annual event into November as you are all so busy in December and what a success it was.  I don't think we could of accommodated any more people in our rehabilitation centre. 

The Shrewsbury Concert band provided some beautiful music whilst everyone browsed around the stalls and enjoyed a cup of tea with some home made cake.



Every year we are overwhelmed by the generosity of you all donating raffle prizes and making hand made items for us to sell.


It was our most successful fair to date and we raised £1149.65 after expenses.

The name of the REINDEER was CARROT and the name of the ROBIN was ISSIE, both name were selected by clients in the rehabilitation centre.

We are extremely grateful to all the staff, volunteers and supporters who volunteered their time to help set up, look after the stalls and tidy up after the event.
