Thompsons Solicitors’ staff fundraise for ABI Week17 May 2016
Thompsons supports brain injury charity Headway during Action for Brain Injury (ABI) Week
Staff at Thompsons Solicitors took part in a range of fundraising activities during Action for Brain Injury Week 2016, to raise money for brain injury charity, Headway.
Action for Brain Injury Week, which took place last week (09-15 May 2016), aims to raise awareness of the seriousness of brain injuries by encouraging members of the public to participate in fun activities and raise money for charity.
On Thursday 12 May, staff from Thompsons’ Bristol office took part in the Headway ‘Grand Cycle Challenge’, which involved volunteers collectively riding 575 miles, the equivalent distance of riding from London to Lyon, on static bikes located across Bristol.
On Friday 13 May, team members from across Thompsons’ UK offices donned hats and headgear for ‘Hats for Headway’.
‘Hats for Headway’ is an annual initiative which takes place during Action for Brain Injury week and encourages people to wear a funny hat for the day and make a charitable donation to Headway.
Paul Brown, a serious injury solicitor at Thompsons Solicitors and secretary for Headway Wearside, said: “A serious brain injury can cause memory loss, cognitive difficulties and physical disability and charities such as Headway provide vital support services to brain injury survivors post-injury and long-term.
“At Thompsons we are proud to maintain close working links with Headway and as always do our best to support the charity during Action for Brain Injury Week by getting involved in the many fundraising events the charity organises every year.”
