Thompsons Solicitors supports Headway in Great North Run06 September 2017
Serious injury specialist Paul Brown will be running to raise money for the brain injury charity
A member of Thompsons Solicitors’ serious injury team is raising funds for a brain injury charity by taking part in the Simplyhealth Great North Run on 10 September.
Paul Brown, a senior serious injury solicitor at Thompsons Solicitors’ Newcastle office, is participating in the half marathon event, which is the largest in the world, on behalf of Headway’s Wearside branch, of which he is the chairman.
"The work that Headway does, not just in Sunderland but nationwide, is vital for those who have suffered brain injuries, and the family members that care for and support them on a daily basis."
Headway Wearside provides a range of services and activities to support those affected by brain injury across the Sunderland area, while also promoting the importance of social inclusion to reduce instances of depression and anxiety.
The serious injury solicitor will be joining thousands of runners in the race, which will see him follow a 13.1 mile route through Newcastle and over the Tyne Bridge, before passing through Gateshead and crossing the finish line in South Shields.
“I’ve worked closely with Headway Wearside since it was launched in 2009 – it’s a charity that’s close to my heart,” said Mr Brown. “I’m always looking for new ways to support the charity, and the Great North Run seemed like the perfect way to raise money on our doorstep”.
“The work that Headway does, not just in Sunderland but nationwide, is vital for those who have suffered brain injuries, and the family members that care for and support them on a daily basis. An example of such support includes information and advice on the effects of brain injury and how a person can adapt their home, car or workplace, which can improve someone’s independence. At Thompsons Solicitors, we have seen first-hand the positive impact Headway’s support can have for brain injury survivors and their families. We work alongside the charity when seeking to ensure people receive appropriate compensation for their injuries.”
