Hatch Brenner Solicitors were pleased to support their long-term charity partner Headway Norfolk & Waveney, the brain injury charity, by supporting the annual Hats for Headway fundraising Day on Friday 15 May.
Hatch Brenner staff along with Headway Norfolk & Waveney and the network of Headway centres across the UK, sported wacky hats for the day – this year from home due to the coronavirus lockdown measures. Participants made a voluntary donation to the charity, as well as posting pictures onto social media to help raise awareness of the impact of acquired brain injury and the important work Headway do in the community.
Colin Cook, Hatch Brenner Partner and Brain Injury specialist commented: “It is great to be able to continue support Headway and the annual Hats for Headway Day even though we are all working from home at the moment. It has been great to see all the smiling faces of our colleagues taking part in this light-hearted awareness driving day. Having referred many of my clients and their families towards the charity, I have seen first hand how vital their work is in continuing to support clients who have suffered an acquired brain injury once they return to their homes. The process of readjusting to life after a brain injury is a long one, and the work of Headway is vital in aiding the rehabilitation process.
Faye Anderson, Headway Norfolk & Waveney Marketing Officer added: “Thank you to Hatch Brenner and our other supporters for taking part in this years Hats for Headway ‘from home’ Day. The event usually takes place in association with Action for Brain Injury (ABI) week – this year, ABI Week will focus on the memory loss associated with acquired brain injury, and the impact of memory loss on the lives and relationships of brain injury and stroke survivors. ABI Week has been postponed until later in the year, but we are really pleased that the Hats for Headway Day is still able to take place from home. As with many other charities, we are working hard to continue to support our clients during the coronavirus lockdown – most of them are self-isolating, so we are turning to technology to keep in touch. They will love seeing all the pictures of our supporters in their wacky hats. Thank you to everyone who continues to support our work.”
