Jill Brown

Headway Suffolk is very sad to receive the news that Jill Brown, a founder member of Headway Ipswich and East Suffolk, has died.

Jill’s daughter Nicky sustained a brain injury in the 1980s. When Nicky had her accident there was no help like Headway in Ipswich. They had to attend Headway in Colchester.

Jill and Ivan started Headway Ipswich and East Suffolk with Ken Plowright, at Backhamlet in Ipswich. They only had six members at that time.

They then went to the Arlington clinic, finally ending up in Pringle ward at Ipswich Hospital.

Jill and Ivan were very active in the beginning setting up meetings and fundraising.

Nicky still attends Headway today.
