We Need You!

Posted in News

Hello…

As the prospect of brighter days ahead is upon us, we would like to share our exciting plans on how you can support us this year. Following the reopening of our centre in January and the expansion of our remote services, we are desperately seeking your support. I sincerely hope, that despite the pressures we have all faced through this pandemic, that you choose to continue to support our cause. Our clients are battling hard to continue with their rehabilitation, but we need YOUR support to protect the future of Headway Swindon. To stand by the 90 clients who currently rely on us and all future clients.

To be on team Headway Swindon, is even easier this year. You can even help from the comfort of your own home…. Want to know more? Then please read on for our exciting ways to be involved this year!

Are you a chocoholic or know someone that is?

Then we challenge you to go on a DECHOX this March, to help raise awareness of brain injuries! Get sponsored by your friends, family or colleagues to prove that you can go a whole month without chocolate.

Did you know: Chocolate is actually good for you! Well…. Dark chocolate is, in small amounts. One study of healthy volunteers eating high-flavanol coca for five days, showed an improved blood flow to the brain.

Additionally, cocoa contains stimulant substances like caffeine and theobromine, which may be a key reason why it can improve brain function in the short term.

If giving up chocolate doesn’t catch your fancy, why not try completing an ULTRA Challenge.

You can take part in one of the 15 ULTRA Challenges and be on Team Headway Swindon. Interested? You can sign up today for just £1 with a special sign up code. Simply email: Laurel@headwayswindon.org.uk for further information.
