On Wednesday 13th December, staff of Irvings brought in mince pies, cakes, cookies and more to contribute to a bake sale with all proceeds going to the charity Headway. We are happy to announce that in total over £80 has been raised! All monies raised will help to support those affected by brain injury across the UK.
Clients who are involved in serious accidents, whether from automobiles, work related or cycling, often need the support of Headway if they have a brain injury. Their mission is to promote understanding of all aspects of brain injury and provide information, support and services to survivors, their families and carers and is a reason why we support their efforts.
To give an idea of where the money goes, the following contributions can support the great work Headway does…
- £15 can recruit and support one of our invaluable volunteers for a month
- £25 provides a family information pack to support people in the aftermath of a brain injury
- £30 helps us run Headway’s national helpline for an hour
The monies raised from our Mince Pie Morning can support all three of these objectives, and more! We would like to say a big thank you to all of our staff who participated by purchasing baked goods, and to those who donated items for sale.
