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 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.

July saw the artistic talents of Headway Worcestershire showcased at the art exhibition in The Hive library in Worcester. Many of our clients had the opportunity to visit, see their artwork on display and enjoy a much needed refreshment. See this and our other wonderful activities.
June's highlight was the much awaited visit from Vamos Theatre Group at the Worcester Day Centre. Clients from Outreach and our Day Centres were treated to a spectacular masked theatre performance, incorporating music and dance, where everyone got involved.
The month of May was one of celebration around the country & of course at Headway, with the King Charles' Coronation. We had an active month with a canal trip, a visit to Uncllys Farm, a coach tour around Evesham Vale & a Hats for Headway party which raised awareness for ABI.

In March we were thrilled to welcome fellow brain injury survivor Shane Booth to our day centre in Worcester. Shane shared his incredible and inspiring story with clients and staff. We also held a music session with a karaoke machine with plenty of microphones!
February was a very special month. Jenny who attends our Worcester Daycentre, wrote a letter of condolence to HRH King Charles III after the death of the Queen last year, and she received a signed card from the King himself.
August was the month for the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II’s ABI Games. What a tremendous couple of days it was with so many memories created. See more about that here. We also had a busy month in the sun, a movie evening, walks in the country and so much more.
During July our clients had fun decorating strawberries, got competitive in the garden and we had some superb help from volunteers who did a superb job transforming Worcester Day Centre's garden. It now has a tranquil area to sit and admire the flourishing plants and flowers. This image is Glen growing his sunflower for the ABI Games!
