On Tuesday 28th November 2017, MP Chris Bryant is holding the first All Party Parliamentary Group meeting to discuss brain injury services. Below is a sample letter you can use to send to your local MP (Find out who that is on: http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/) to ask them to attend the meeting. Add in your own personal story! Your MP is your advocate - write to them with this letter to let them how important brain injury is, and how much better services need to be to support your needs. This is your chance to influence those with the power to makes things happen!
Thank you to all who came along to our Autumn social at Fulham Palace on Saturday. A very pleasant afternoon was whiled amongst the beautiful grounds...
It was particularly to see some members that we had not seen for a while, and even a new member - we hope we'll see more of you at future events! The dependable English weather gave us a few showers but that didn't stop us enjoying tea & cake inside the café. See you at the next event!
It's been a fantastic week of fundraising for Brain Injury Awareness Week. Thank you to all our volunteers and committee members who baked cakes and shook tins at hospitals, train stations & supermarkets. You all did a fantastic job at getting the message out about head injury and what HWL do! The week culminated in a wonderful morning of sunshine and activity in Regents Park - our members and friends ran or walked the 5 and 10K course. Well done team!
A big thank you to everyone who donated - we raised almost £3000! This will be used directly for providing services, such as our support groups and educational events.
Thank you to Waitrose Fulham, who did a collection for us and raised over £300! A very pleased Julian (one of our members) is presented with the cheque in Waitrose. Want to support us? Check out how you can help out in Brain Injury Awareness week!
We all met up on the sunny steps in the morning and then joined an informative talk by Tate volunteer Jessica around the museum on ‘19th century: people and places’.
The day finished off with a traditional teas and cake round in the coffee shop. The day was extremely enjoyable and the first of many trips we hope to organise.
Thanks to Marie-Laure for hosting!
