Throughout the year Headway has continued its mission to improve the lives of people following a brain injury and this couldn’t be done without generous supporters and volunteers, so on behalf of all of their staff and clients – thank you.

At this time of year, whilst many of us are celebrating, there is a sharp rise in emergency admissions to hospital caused by an excessive consumption of alcohol. For instance hospital admissions related to alcohol increase by 377% on New Year’s Day.

Some of these admissions will be related to brain injuries. For these individuals this will be a life-changing event for them and their families.

That is why Headway Cambridgeshire is promoting ‘Rethink Your Drink’. They are asking people to cut down on their festive drinking by having one less drink during seasonal celebrations – whether that’s at a work party or a night out with friends – and then donating the cost of that drink – £5 – to Headway Cambridgeshire.

To support this campaign please either:

Text DRNK05 to 70070 or Visit their JustGiving Page
Text DRNK05 £5 to 70070 Rethink Your Drink

If you are an eligible UK taxpayer, please also allow Headway Cambridgeshire to claim Gift Aid on your behalf if you are eligible, which will turn your £5 donation into £6.25.

By supporting Headway Cambridgeshire you will be helping them to continue their work with brain injured people, whilst making sure you have a safe and enjoyable Christmas.

Warmest wishes for Christmas and New Year.
