Headway gets a helping hand


Families and carers of brain injury sufferers will receive new information booklets from charity Headway, thanks to sponsorship from Clydesdale Bank International.

Headway Guernsey is a local charity who currently supports 60 islanders and their families who live with the long term effects of a brain injury. The booklets contain self-help tips and are distributed to families coming to terms with brain injury.

The bank has also agreed to purchase a laminator for the charity so that they can produce their own materials in house.

James Blower, Managing Director of Clydesdale Bank International is pleased to be able to support the charity in any way possible.

“Headway is such a worthwhile charity and anything we can do to make their day to day running easier is a real pleasure. I am pleased to also announce that one of the bank’s sporting ambassadors, England Rugby World Cup winning star Mike Catt, who visited the island earlier this year has signed a ball which will be auctioned at the charity’s fundraising event later this year.”

Headway’s Executive Director, Philippa Stahelin, is thankful for the opportunity to raise the charity’s profile and lower their operating costs.

"Headway is extremely grateful to Clydesdale Bank International for their support in sponsoring these self-help guides and the laminator which will enable us to produce posters and information sheets in house, for distribution to our members and the local community," she said.

Headway’s fundraising dinner takes place on 23 September at St Pierre Park Hotel. Tickets are available by emailing
