Welcome to our Newsletters

Join us each month as we capture the highlights of our clients journey's and escapades.

December 2023

Throughout the whole of December, we ran 'The Mince Pie Morning' that was part of a wider Headway campaign across the UK. This aimed to raise awareness and funds, providing an opportunity for clients, their friends and families, as well as supporters, to come together and socialise during the festive period. Worcester client Freya helped to make an incredible 60 mince pies. Attendees were encouraged to make a small donation for the mince pies, which raised a fantastic total of £70!

We're always thrilled to be part of Worcester Cathedral's annual Christmas Tree Festival. This year, Megan and Morgan constructed a tree using scrap wood and upcycled furniture drawers. Each box represented a different part of Headway Worcestershire.

November 2023

November was a month to showcase our upcycled furniture at the woodwork workshop at the Worcester Daycentre. We are grateful for all the unwanted furniture that is donated to us so we can create wonderful transformations.

We celebrated our wonderful Volunteers, who all dedicate their free time to support Headway Worcestershire clients and also assist in our charity shop. We served up a special afternoon tea - a selection of delicious cakes and homemade treats, all served on beautiful china crockery.

Clients enjoyed a trip to John Lawson's Halloween Circus in Webbs, West Hagley. The stripy tent hosted a talented bunch of performers!

October 2023

October marked Headway Worcestershire’s annual Halloween party. ‘Ghouls and Boys’ were invited from Outreach and all 3 Daycentres, to celebrate all things spooky.

Stourport Daycentre clients, plus Worcester client Mel, have started an exciting 6-week Walking Rugby programme, working alongside the Worcester Warriors Foundation.

Bromsgrove clients, plus Support Worker Claire and volunteers Dagmar and John, visited Churchfields - a family farm set in the heart of the beautiful Worcestershire countryside.

September 2023

September saw us visiting the Cotswold Wildlife Park in Burford. 42 clients and staff travelled by coach, blessed with glorious sunshine, to enjoy a day amongst the animals and scenery.

Joining in with local community events is a big part of what we do, as it benefits our clients hugely with their social skills and their mental health. We were lucky to head over to the Macmillan coffee morning and to visit the Morgan Factory in Malvern.

Please read all about everything else that our clients achieved and experienced throughout the month.

August 2023

August was a huge month for not only Headway Worcestershire, but also adults nationwide living with an acquired injury. The ABI Games was held for the second year at the University of Worcester Sports Arena on 3rd August.
