Summer Fair 2017

Tuesday, August 01, 2017


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.

Headway Shropshire Summer Fair

Tuesday, August 02, 2016
The sun came out on Thursday and our Annual Summer Fair was a great success.  It was lovely to see clients and their families as well as people from the surrounding businesses.  Feather Perfect brought along a selection of beautiful birds and lots of people enjoyed a falconry experience.  Shrewsbury Sapphires dance troupe added sparkle to the event with both their tiny tots and adults performing for us.  We are very grateful to everyone that kindly donated raffle prizes and items to sell at the fair.  It was our most successful Summer Fair and we are very grateful to everyone for their support.


Interserve Garden Day

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Headway Shropshire would like to thank the volunteers from Interserve Telford that helped to complete our garden ready for our Summer Fair.  The whole team worked really hard to paint the fences, flower beds, bird feeder and sun dial. Due to the recent weather being perfect for weeds our newly planted vegetable and herb beds needed some care and attention.  The bank adjacent to the path has now been laid with new turf and some climbers have been planted at the top which will cover the wire fence over time.  Our clients were also treated to a wonderful selection of sandwich and cakes which was kindly provided by the team.  


Headway Shropshire Garden Project

Thursday, May 26, 2016

The Headway Shropshire garden has had a make over with help from a team of volunteers from BT and Nikki from Top Notch Gardens. A bank of earth has been removed to widen the pathway to the top of the garden, all fences and rails have been painted, a fence has been built at back of garden, weeding of paved areas and planting of herbs, vegetable and trees. The garden now looks amazing and can be enjoyed by the clients at the centre throughout the year.



We are very grateful to all the local businesses who donated all the item to enable the project to go ahead.
