Some examples of our fantastic donations!

 

Donation of £337.33 from our friends at Morrisons! 


 

Claire, Jonny and Becky were delighted to meet with our friends at Morrisons Plc recently and receive a donation cheque for £337.33! 

 

Morrisons kindly offered to "match-fund" the proceeds made from a family fun day back in June, held at their Rushden premises, and at which Headway East Northants ran a stall. 

 

Every penny will be used here at our centre to enrich and develop client lives! Huge thanks to Andrew and Helen (pictured above, with Claire, Jonny and Becky) and indeed everyone at Morrisons - hugely appreciated. 

 

 

 

A Spook-Tacular donation from Tesco of Wellingborough! 

Thanks to a very kind donation of pumpkins from Wellingborough's Tesco store, we had a fantastic time in in the run up to Halloween.

 

Our clients got very creative with their Halloween designs and skilfully brought them to life to spook-out the centre! 

 

We had all sorts of looks, from dripping fake blood, to googly eyes to palstic fork fangs.

 

A lovely activity, and special thanks to our friend, Emma, at Tesco Wellingborough, for arranging the donation.

 

Our clients in action!

Walking into HEN's hearts - The Waendel Walkers amazing fundraising donation! 

 

 

We were thrilled to receive a cheque for £400 from our friends, 'The Waendel Walkers' of Irthlingborough!

 

The group has been busy fundraising for us over the summer period, and got in touch to not only let us know they had a donation to offer, but also to invite our colleague, Lynne (pictured above), out for one of their Sunday walks!

 

 

Lynne was delighted to meet with the group and receive the cheque, not to mention a six mile walk in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside. 

 

 

Huge thanks to The Waendel Walkers for fundraising for Headway East Northants - it is hugely appreciated by every one of us! 

 

 

Craftmaking with a difference thanks to Antex!


 

Thanks to a very kind donation of crafting materials and tools from Antex, our clients have been able to broaden their horizons on terms of art, craft and design skills! 

 

We've been enjoying all sorts of artistry involving wax, gems, foiling and even some pyrography, too. 

 

We think these photos just prove that " happiness is handmade"!. Thanks to all at Antex for the kind donation. 

 

Handmade garden planters from Ceepees Handmade!

 

 

 

We were delighted to have a visit this summer from our friend, Chris Palmer, of Ceepees Handmade. 

 

 

Chris very kindly donated two handmade planters for our garden (pictured above, with Chris).  The planters are handmade by Chris himself, and are the perfect height for all clients to comfortably maintain. 

 

Our friends at Morrisons stepped in once again and supplied us with some beautiful seasonal plants to get the planters going. 

 

Huge thanks to Chris for his generous donation of time and effort, and to Morrisons for the lovely autumn plants.  Another terrific boon for our garden! 

Generous donation enables purchase of new garden furniture!

 

 

Thanks to an incredibly generous donation from local group The Swivel Club, we've been able to purchase some fabulous new furniture for our recently landscaped garden!         

 

Items include an attractive wooden bench, and a 6-seater patio set complete with cushions and parasol. These items offer relaxing, supportive seating for our clients and further enhance the beautiful outdoor space we now have.  

 

 

Our clients enjoyed some Headway teamwork in our woodwork room to build the bench, and also worked together brilliantly to turn our patio set from 'flatpack' to 'fabulous'!  

 

 

           

 

We even managed to get together outside for an 'al fresco' lunch! 

 

 

Donations to Headway, no matter how large or small, really do go to enhance and enrich the lives of brain injury survivors, so an enormous thank you to The Swivel Club. 

 

 

If you would like to chat with us about donations, we'd love to hear from you. Please get in touch by emailing        rebecca.lake@headwayeastnorthants.org.uk

 

      

 
 

Morrisons and Tesco help the Headway East Northants barbecue go with a swing!

 

We had a wonderful time at our annual barbecue on the 21st June, with help from our friends at supermarkets Tesco and Morrisons!

 

We were lucky enough to have some extremely generous donations of food, drinks and sundries from our friends at both Tesco and Morrisons. Our clients enjoyed a beautiful range of barbecued goodies, from burgers to sausages (complete with all the trimmings!) through to plenty of of cold drinks to keep us all cool on what was a very hot day.

 

The generosity of these donations helped  provide a wonderful day together for clients, carers, staff and volunteers

 

We think the smiles on our clients' faces say it all.

Headway Music Group rock the charity fundraiser!

 

An amazing night was had by all at the fundraising concert on Saturday 6th October, featuring facilitator Freyja, deputy manager Jonny, and the Headway Music Group, raising an incredible £405 EACH for both Headway East Northants and the Cransley Hospice!

 

The guys all performed  with others to raise funds for both Headway East Northants and the Cransley Hospice and the night was incredibly well-supported, with the venue packed to the rafters! 

 

Well done to all involved, particularly to Freyja and partner Chris, who worked so hard to create such a professional gig, and of course, our amazing Headway clients for conquering their nerves and performing two songs LIVE!
