On Friday 18th May we once again donned our hats to celebrate #HatsForHeadway day…an important day helping to raise awareness for acquired brain injuries.

We at Headway East Kent are fortunate to be supported all across the UK, from Northern Ireland, Manchester, all the way back down to sunny Folkestone, including the rising YouTube star Phelan_Myself .  Here are some of the Hats For Headway selfies our fabulous supporters sent in to us!

 

Thanks all, and keep up the great work raising awareness for Headway East Kent.

In Folkestone Headway House last week the group enjoyed a visit from Hayley, who on behalf of Bunnings UK, organised a ‘Birdwatch’ activity.

Our clients made lard and seed feeders to encourage birds into their gardens.

Thank you to Hayley for her enthusiasm and to Bunnings UK who offer such great support of local charities within their community.

 

At Headway East Kent, we are always happy to welcome supporters to visit our day centres and meet with our clients to see how they benefit from attending our groups.

on the 18th January 2018, Eric Cook and his wife Susan came along not only to enjoy a coffee and chat but to present us with a cheque for £1000 on behalf of the Sandgate Lodge Freemasons.

On Wednesday 15th November, Headway Folkestone welcomed some visitors.

Alan Myers, president of the Folkestone Channel Rotary Club, Bill Whitby, who was the Channel 50 Challenge event organiser, Duncan Hopkin, Channel Rotary PR, and Jane Pearman with Scooby from Hypo Hounds.

Back in June, people were offered the chance to sign up to this cycle challenge and take on a choice of 3 different circular routes along Kent’s Romney Marsh, riding 10, 30 or 50 miles, all raising money and awareness in aid of both Headway East Kent and Hypo Hounds.

Wednesday, our visitors presented both Hypo Hounds and ourselves with a cheque for £3,500, which was split 50/50, meaning Headway East Kent received and amazing £1,750.00.

This money will go towards funding for tutors in each of our five day centres across East Kent.

We would once again like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for all your hard work.

Yesterday evening Catherine, Folkestone client rep and Gareth, one of our devoted Folkestone volunteers joined Liz- Folkestone Facilitator, at the Presentation Evening for the class winners of the Venetian Fete held in August of this year.

On Wednesday 25th October at Headway House Folkestone, David Harvey and Bill Newns, from Folkestone Lions Club came to the Day Centre and presented us with a cheque for £600.

This was money raised through the sale of a yearly cryptic quiz sheet, which is written and produced by Bill. It is something the clients now also look forward to joining in each year, testing their skills and knowledge.

We would like to say a huge “thank you” to David, Bill and all the Folkestone Lions for this very generous donation and continued support throughout the years.
