Simpson Millar Raises £32,000 for Brain Injury Charity Headway
National law firm Simpson Millar has raised a total of £32,000 for Headway – the brain injury association throughout 2019.
Simpson Millar has been Headway’s Baton Holder this year and had aimed to raise £20,000 to help support the charity’s work. We comfortably beat this target through a variety of fundraising efforts, including:
- Hosting a masquerade ball at the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool
- Mince pie mornings
- Wearing quirky hats for the #HatsforHeadway event
- Taking part in Headway’s corporate challenge Go Wild, which saw adventurous members of staff taking on activities such as lake swimming and rock climbing
We presented a cheque to the charity at Headway's annual awards ceremony at the InterContinental in Mayfair.
Ian Cohen, Head of Personal Injury and Medical Negligence Claims at Simpson Millar, said: “It’s been an honour for us to support Headway throughout 2019 especially in this, their 40th anniversary year. Well done to everyone, both inside and outside of the firm, who took part in our events and who donated essential funds to a wonderful charity.
“The work that Headway do on behalf of serious head injury victims is absolutely invaluable. At Simpson Millar, we know that when people suffer life-changing injuries, they and their families need a lot of support after an accident and Headway helps rehabilitate those most in need.
“Our own values of being open and supportive of survivors of brain injury and their families are a perfect fit with Headway and we look forward to continuing our support and building our relationship with Headway in the years to come.”
Jo Plant, Director of Fundraising at Headway, added: “We are so grateful to everyone at Simpson Millar who worked so hard and showed such courage taking part in some truly testing fundraising events.
“It was lovely to see how the whole organisation really got behind Headway to give their time and effort so generously throughout the year.
“To break what was already a difficult target by so much is amazing, and the money raised by their efforts will enable the charity to support many people living with the consequences of brain injury. Thank you to everyone who took part.”
Headway – the brain injury association aims to increase awareness and understanding of brain injury and its consequences, and make sure people with brain injuries, along with their families and carers, get the support and information. The organisation also campaigns to improve the quality of brain injury screening, acute care, assessment, rehabilitation and community reintegration across the UK.
