The Calvert Trust 2017
In September Headway Lincolnshire enabled some brain injury survivors to attend The Calvert Trust in The Lake District. The members took part in numerous activities during the weekend including canoeing, rock climbing and abseiling.
We wish to say a big thank you to the following for their recent donations and funding for the charity:
The Lincolnshire Co op - £36,000
The Bromhead Medical Charity - £56,402.25 which will enable us to employ our Information & Support Worker on a full time basis until 2019.
TSB Long Sutton raised over £1000 for Headway Lincolnshire by taking us on as their charity of the year between September 2016 and September 2017
Also to the following Trusts for their funding: Waynflete Charitable Trust, The Len Medlock Charitable Trust, Horncastle & District Wellbeing Fund, and Waitrose.
Our supporters have also been very busy organising events in aid of Headway Lincolnshire.
