Quiz Night to mark 5 years of Headway Suffolk

A charity quiz night is being held in Bury St Edmunds on Thursday 11 April at 7pm to celebrate Headway Suffolk’s fifth anniversary and fundraise for its cause.

Headway supports local adults with acquired brain injuries and neurological conditions, as well as their families, in their recovery through its extensive range of rehabilitation, therapy and support services.

The Suffolk charity was formed on 1 April 2014 following the merger of East and West Suffolk, and since then it’s gone from strength to strength by helping 250 people every week rebuild lost skills, improve confidence and increase social integration at its hubs throughout the county, as well as providing support to individuals in their own home and local community.

It’s marking its fifth anniversary with the quiz night at its premises at St Georges House in Olding Road, which is next to the West Suffolk Council car park. The event costs £10 per person, which includes a cold buffet and refreshments, with teams of up to four people. There will be great prizes and a raffle.

To book your place, contact the charity’s communications and marketing officer David Crane on 01284 702535 or email [email protected] but places are now very limited and need to be confirmed by 9am on April 8.

David Crane said: “The quiz night promises to be a fun and enjoyable evening as we have service users, families, volunteers, staff, friends and supporters all taking part, as well as colleagues from Ashtons Legal, Suffolk County Council and Bury Town Council.

“2019 is a big year for Headway Suffolk as we celebrate our fifth anniversary year, as well as continuing our big plans to build the Professor Stephen Hawking Neuro Centre in Ipswich and continuing talks with St Edmundsbury Council to be part of the new Western Way development for a new hub in Bury St Edmunds.

“Local businesses and supporters can get involved by taking part in the quiz night or donating items for winning and raffle prizes.”
