Our staff in the Rehabilitation Centre have spent the last week planning and creating a Summer Festival in the centre. Many of our clients were unfortunately unable to attend our Summer Fair which took place in the evening, so we bought the festival to the clients.
Everyday there were different activities for the clients to get involved with including a Daily Raffle with prizes donated by our supporters. There was also a Name the Dog and Guess the Number of Sweets in the jar completion running all week.
Clients enjoyed getting dressed up with our Photo Booth Props as you can see from the photo below.
Sarah MacBeth our Rehabilition Centre Manager was really pleased with how the event went "It was lovely to see everyone getting involved and we had lots of fun".
Support staff were adding a touch of sparkle all week by offering Glitter Art and Temporary Tattoos. We had lots of handmade and donated items on a stall for clients to buy throughout the week and it was a lovely way to raise some money for the Rehabilitation Centre.
Thank you to everyone that showed their support and joined us for the evening at Headway Shropshire Summer Fair. Despite the tremendous downpour half way through the evening, everyone moved inside and it was our most successful fair to date. It was lovely to see the families of both Clients, staff and volunteers browsing around the stalls.
Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors very kindly donated a beautiful Koala for our Guess the Name Competition. The name of the Koala was MILLY and was won by Darren in our Rehabilitation Centre.
Headway Shropshire is very grateful to all the businesses and individuals who donated all our amazing raffle prizes. We had some very happy prize winners.
These events would not be possible with out all the volunteers that helped out on the evening. A huge thank you to the local companies that helped run stalls including Lanyon Bowdler, Shrewsbury Job Centre and Janet Redlar Travel & Tourism.
