Summer Festival 2019

Friday, August 09, 2019

The support staff at Headway Shropshire organised another amazing Summer Festival for everyone who attends our Rehabilitation Centre.



It was great to see so many people get involved, everyone had a lot of fun with the photo booth props and there are lots more photos up in the rehabilitation centre if you are visiting.

There was a Daily Raffle, Guess the Name of the Orangutan? and How Many Sweets in the Jar?

Hats For Headway Day 2019

Friday, May 10, 2019

Hats for Headway day is a 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 24th 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 £2 to Headway Shropshire

Summer Festival

Monday, August 13, 2018

After the success of our Summer festival last year, the support staff in our rehabilitation centre at Headway Shropshire spent a week in August organising another festival for the clients. 


We had a daily raffle for the clients with all the lovely items that have been kindly donated or handmade.  Our mobile stall was very successful, our clients were able to buy gifts for family and friends and raised £105

All the clients got involved, dressing up for our photo booth.  A touch of glamour was added to the event , as our support staff got creative offering glitter art and glitter tattoos.

Summer Fair

Friday, July 20, 2018

Lovely to see so many of you at our Summer Fair.

We raised £763.


Thank you to everyone who helped out at the event.  It would not be possible without your support.
