FUNDRAISERS have launched a campaign to raise money for a local brain injury charity.

Independent Fundraisers will begin raising money for Headway Worcestershire with a coffee morning on Friday (November 10) inside the Guildhall in Worcester.

The group will serve homemade cake, tea and coffee between 10am and 2pm.

Visitors will have a chance to pick up an early Christmas present at the craft stall and be in with a chance of winning a prize on the tombola.

The group will then have a bucket collection outside the Counting House entrance of Asda in Worcester on Saturday, November 18 between 10am and 4pm.

Neil Smith of Independent Fundraisers said: "We are delighted to be able to support Headway Worcestershire and are looking forward to making a meaningful donation at the end of our campaign.

"Headway is also one of the mayor of Worcester's supported charities and it will be great to see him on the day."

Headway are the local independent acquired brain injury charity that support over 300 people in Worcestershire. For over 25 years they have designed personalised rehabilitation programmes and supported those who are recovering from a brain injury.

Mandie Fitzgerald, fundraising and marketing manager at Headway said: "Our aim is to improve the quality of life and assist the families and carers through their journey, as well as educate children and adults on acquired brain injury.

"For over 25 years, we have aided people on their road to recovery, and helped them live a happier and better life after brain injury.”
