Hats for Headway Street Party – 13 May 2024

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

Hats for Headway Day is an annual fundraising event in which Headway invites anyone who wants to help improve life after brain injury to wear a wacky hat, make a donation to Headway, and post a picture on social media to show support.   It will be recognised this year on 17 May 2024.

Headway North Cumbria held its own event in the form of a street party which was held in the main hall of the New Waterton Hall on 13 May 2024.  Whilst it was considered to be a Hats for Headway fundraising event there was no expectation for attendees to wear a hat or any other item of fancy dress. 

In the spirit of the traditional street party, and in order to keep costs down, we asked our volunteers and members to bring food to share with others, although this was not obligatory.  As usual we had a wonderful array of offerings and there was plenty for the 33 attendees to share.  Our street party ran between 1:30pm and 3pm and a good time was had by all as can hopefully be seen in the photographs accompanying this article.

A total of £ 155 was raised for branch funds.

A huge thank you to our fantastic team of volunteers that worked so hard to ensure that the street party ran so smoothly.  We would also like to thank everyone that brought food along to share or contributed in other ways to make the event such a success.  

A selection of photographs from the event can be found in the gallery in the Photo Album called Hats for Headway Street Party and can be viewed in a slideshow below.
