Awards Dinner – Celebrating Clients’ Achievements

Headway Suffolk will mark the achievements of local brain injury survivors and those living with neurological conditions at its annual Awards Dinner on Thursday 22 November.

Every day, the brain injury charity sees remarkable strides by its 250 service users against adversity after having their lives affected by a brain injury or a neurological condition.

For some, progress could be learning to use their other hand after a stroke has left them with a weakness on one side. For others, it may be making improvements with walking after having their mobility impaired as a result of their injury or illness.

Headway’s rehabilitation team will carefully nominate service users for an achievement award who have made excellent progress in their recovery in the past year.

The Awards Dinner, now in its fourth year, takes place at the 100-seater Shelley’s Restaurant, Suffolk New College, Rope Walk in Ipswich from 6.30pm.

Guests will enjoy a delightful 3-course dinner, which can include a Christmas meal, and it is an ideal opportunity for companies to treat their staff team to an early festive function and support a worthwhile cause.

David Crane, the charity’s Communications and Marketing Officer, said: “We see many incredible achievements by our clients every day across Suffolk, and the Awards Dinner is a great way of formally celebrating these milestones.”

Tickets cost £50 each and are available by telephoning 01473 712225 or emailing: helenfairweather@headwaysuffolk.org.uk.

Headway Suffolk supports 250 adults a week who have an acquired brain injury or a neurological condition through an extensive range of rehabilitation, therapy and support services at its hubs, in the community and in people’s homes.

According to the latest statistics released by Headway – the brain injury association, there were 3,201 hospital admissions (8.7 per day) of acquired brain injuries in Suffolk in 2016-17, of which 1,780 were male and 1,421 were female.
