Adults living with an acquired brain injury in East Northamptonshire received a personalised Christmas hamper from Headway East Northants.
The brain injury charity sent out the gifts following the support of law firm Shoosmiths, with 40 people that use Headway East Northants’ services landing a hamper full of festive treats.
Headway East Northants, which operates an activity centre facility in Irthlingborough, was established in 1999 as an affiliation of Headway UK, the brain injury association. It provides a range of services for people aged 18 and over that have an acquired brain injury, including counselling, education and respite care, with support also provided to their families.
Claire Phillips, centre manager at Headway East Northants, said:
“We were delighted to receive Shoosmiths’ offer of support which enabled us to gift a personalised Christmas hamper to our clients and their families.
“As we all know, it has been another challenging year and due to COVID-19 we were unable to take everyone out for Christmas lunch. However, with Shoosmiths’ funding, we could continue to spread some joy during the festive period.”
Shoosmiths was founded in Northampton in 1845. The firm now operates 13 offices across the UK.
Sharine Burgess, partner and joint head of Shoosmiths’ Northampton office, said:
“We’re proud to partner with Headway East Northants – making sure that those who use its services received a festive hamper this Christmas.”
