Headway UK Nurse-Led Helpline

 

You can always come to us here at Headway East Northants , whatever your query.

 

However, to enhance the support we can offer, the national Headway UK charity also provides a fully confidential helpline, available to anyone who may have a question or query regarding brain injury.

 

Do however bear in mind that this helpline is run by the national 'Headway UK' charity, and not us here at Headway East Northants. 

 

The helpline, operated by both trained nurses and non-clinical staff, is available from 9.00am until 5.00pm, Mondays to Fridays. While the helpline cannot offer medical or legal advice, medical diagnoses or personal recommendations, it can provide further information and support.

 

If the helpline is of interest, the number is 0808 800 2244, or you can email on  helpline@headway.org.uk

An INCREDIBLE London Marathon 2019!

Team HEN were nothing short of phenomenal in this year's Virgin London Marathon! 

 

Each and every runner did an amazing job for us, battling on through shin splints, aches, pains and even lost toenails (OW!) to finish those 26.2 miles for us. We were bowled over by the efforts everyone went to, not only with the intensity of the physical training, but also their creative and imaginative ideas for fundraising, all on top of juggling work and family commitments. Each of them needs a superhero cape! 

 

So far we have raised over £45,000 and we're still counting! It's just amazing, and we will be able to continue enriching and supporting the lives of those managing ABI with this superb amount of money raised.

 

We will shortly be posting some great photos from this special event so watch this space! If you're interested in running for us next year - get in touch!

Go as wild and wacky as you like - you could even design your own head gear, a la Philip Treacy!

 

If you take part - make sure you send us some photos! 

 

Thank you so much!
