Derby Telegraph Business Awards 2019

Winner - Not For Profit category

Sponsored by Sellick Partnership

We are incredibly happy to announce that Headway Derby recently won the prestigious Derby Telegraph Business Awards 2019 in the Sellick Partnership Not For Profit category.

We were so incredibly proud to represent our whole community and wanted to ensure everyone was represented on the night.

Tickets were expensive and outside of our budget but Chair Debra Morris came to our rescue and funded five tickets. This meant that:
were all represented on the night; and what a lovely night it was!

As a traumatic Brain Injury specialist Solicitor who set up the #AffinityLaw Derby office less than a year ago, Debra knows better than most the importance of the work that we do across the region. Thank You Debra x

We have much to do in the year ahead as this is our 25th Anniversary and there will be a number of events throughout the year to celebrate this achievement.

Keep checking back with us to find out about events and how you can either support or attend them

Thank You to all our members - it's a privilege to be part of your journey.

As many of you know by now, we moved to our new Brain Injury Hub in January 2019 and the first six months have been incredibly eventful with new projects being piloted, winning the Derby Telegraph Business Awards 2019, supporting a team of 10 dedicated Headway Derby Staff and Volunteers to complete the Derby 10K, completing a 25km Cycle Ride to raise awareness of the work of the charity; and holding our third Black Tie Ball.

Most recently our Chair Debra, Operations and Development Manager Rebecca, Adult Learning Tutor Emma, and  Comm's Volunteer Katie all took part in an eight week BootCamp with Angela Silver at Nuffield Health and Wellbeing Gym to raise awareness of the challenges faced by brain in jured people in trying to stay motivated and engage in new challenges - from this Emma has decided to throw herself into a huge challenge and on 26th April 2020 she will take part in the Virgin Money London Marathon to raise much needed funds for our work. Well be posting regular progress updates as Emma prepares for the challenge and will share information on how you can get involved by supporting her.
