How you can support us

 


 

There are so many ways you can help us to support brain injury survivors and their families. Here are just a few tasters!

 

Corporate Support

 

Headway East Northants depends on the generous support of organisations and their employees. Without corporate support, we simply wouldn't be able to continue the work we do.

 

We currently enjoy wonderful relationships with the supermarkets Morrisons and Tesco, who offer kind donations of food/drink/sundries for our fundraiser coffee mornings and barbecues, and even plants for our beautiful new garden. The simplest donation can make a world of difference to us!

 

So think about adopting us as your 'Charity of the Year' to support, or encourage staff to fundraise for Headway East Northants. Charity involvement promotes teamwork, develops leadership skills, builds confidence and helps communication and creativity thrive.

 

 

Payroll Giving

 

Payroll Giving is an easy, efficient and flexible way to donate to Headway East Northants by a direct deduction from your monthly wages.

 

Your regular contribution will mean that Headway East Northants can continue to provide support to brain injury survivors in the long term, and will also help us to budget and plan ahead more effectively.

 

There are many benefits to this type of donating:

 

It is tax-effective, so Headway East Northants will receive both your donation, AND the tax you'd have paid on that amount - so there are no Gift Aid forms to fill in.

 

Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax, so for each £1.00 you give, it will actually only cost you 80p. If you're a higher-rate taxpayer, it'll cost just 60p.

 

It can be for any amount - it simply depends entirely on what you feel you'd like to donate.

 

It enables you to budget for supporting Headway East Northants each month.

Take on a challenge!

 

Ever fancied doing something totally different for a great cause? 

 

Whether it's that sponsored run or swim, bake-off contest, disco or maybe something totally crazy, we want to hear from you! 

 

Do it - take up that challenge for Headway East Northants and raise money to support us. Each and every penny makes real differences to lives.

 

As an example, back in 2016, some of our supporters climbed the Giant White Mountain in Iceland, and also took part in a skydive! However, don't worry if that sort of thing is a bit too wild. We're just as delighted to hear from you if you're thinking of something like a tombola, raffle or bake sale! 

Run a Marathon!

 

Headway East Northants has places available in the Virgin London Marathon each year. If you've ever been tempted to take up this fantastic challenge, we'd love to hear from you. You'll have fun, get fit and at the same time raise money that makes a huge difference to the lives of brain injury survivors and their loved ones. 

 

We'll support you at each and every step of the way, ensuring you have everything you need so you're Run-Ready!
