Christmas choir visit

PEOPLE helped by Headway Thames Valley took part in the charity’s Christmas concert.

PEOPLE helped by Headway Thames Valley took part in the charity’s Christmas concert.

They formed a choir which performed a medley of songs, including I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by the Proclaimers, When I’m 64 by the Beatles and Where Is Love?, from the musical Oliver!

The event took place at the charity’s base in Greys Road, Henley, and was attended by supporters as well as family and friends of the singers.

Wendy Carlson, general manager, said: “We do it every year so we can give the choir something to aim for and it is very popular. It gives our clients the chance to practise and most of them are singing from memory.

“The concert is only an hour long and is informal. It has an end of term feel about it and is fun.”



The charity helps people who have suffered a brain injury and holds music therapy sessions every Wednesday for individuals as well as groups.

Mrs Carlson thanked the Henley Festival Trust for a £1,000 donation and Umbrella Entertainment, which has pledged £5,000 towards the cost of music therapy this year.
