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.

Carers Support Group

Carers Support Group


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 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 carer group is to meet other people in the same situation, to value each others ideas and experiences, to have a break and to get practical information.

A recent donation enabled us to organise a Pamper evening for members of our carers group.  They had a wonderful evening where they were treated to facials and head massage and the opportunity to have their hair styled and nails painted. 


 

Future dates for our Carer Evening at 6pm till 7.30pm at Headway Shropshire
