Headway East Kent like many other charities have been hard hit recently due to the impact of COVID-19, and have been unable to organise many of our usual awareness days that would also bring in much-needed funds, which allow us to continue to support and provide the service we do to so many brain-injured adults and their families in the East Kent area.
So we put our heads together, and our clients came up with the idea – ‘Get Hairy for Headway’.
On 1st November 2020, many of our male clients put their razors aside for the month and let their facial follicles flow free in support of, and in the hope of raising funds for Headway East Kent.
With online donations alone, the guys raised an amazing amount exceeding £700, and that isn’t including offline amounts which have yet to be collected and totalled up.
Here you can see the gents who participated and the link to the page set up for this particular fundraiser.
Well done gents!! And a big thank you also to all who donated.

This weekend, after a lot of hard work Reg Singleton, one of our Ashford clients, his wife Jan an our Day Centres Manager Paula Brown travelled to Pickering, Yorkshire for the official launch of our new ‘Headway Rose’.
