With Easter coming up round the corner, our AGM this year featured beautiful chicks hand-knitted by Marie-Laure!
Thank you to everyone who attended. It was an excellent AGM, with lots of participation. Over pizzas & soft drinks (thanks to Rickey & Jean for your organisation), in the beautiful surrounds of the Maggie Centre (thank you Louise!), we discussed what we'd been up to in 2018, and what we want to accomplish in 2019.
We were particularly pleased to welcome Damian, from the Chelsea FC Foundation, Davina, Lucinda, Kristalle & Sarah from Imperial. They've all been instrumental to setting up the new 'Health & Wellbeing' program this year which our members attended. It was also lovely to chat with our members - old & new.
Here's looking forward to 2019!

A massive thank you to the Co-op supermarket for supporting us this year in their Community Fund. The Co-op's members have helped us raise over £2000 to support our activities. All the funds will go directly towards supporting the work of Penny & Tony - our fabulous and dedicated Project Managers. Together, they provide much needed support to survivors of brain injury and their families, as well as the clinical teams looking after them.
Thank you Co-op Community Fund! (watch the full video here)
Congratulations and huge thanks to Julien Mghabghab who successfully ran the Richmond Half Marathon on Sunday 16th September and raised over £1000 in support of Headway West London. This was a wonderful achievement and the money raised provides a great contribution in helping to support the work we do.
Well done Julian and thank you!

Everyone's got the World Cup on the brain, and we have too!
Chelsea Foundation FC and Headway West London are starting an exciting new collaboration designed to get you up & about, and active. Exercise is great for brain recovery and the team at Chelsea have got lots of experience making sport engaging and accessible for survivors of brain injuries.
