SPRING NEWSLETTER 2019

SPRING NEWSLETTER 2019

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Summer Festival

Summer Festival

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.

Headway Shropshire Winter Fair

Headway Shropshire Winter Fair

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.
