A CHARITY held a free barbecue in Henley. About 30 people attended the event organised by Headway Thames Valley at its base at Brunner Hall in Greys Road.

Among them was the charity’s new chief executive Stephen Walsh, who said: “We need to strengthen our volunteer activity and if there are any individuals in Berkshire or South Oxfordshire who would like to give a few hours each week to help us we would be very pleased to hear from them.”

As well as the food on offer, there was a tombola with prizes including toys and chocolates and a display of artwork by Headway clients. Jamie Higgins, a support worker for Headway, said: “The barbecue went well. There was a good mixture of clients and their families and some members of the public present. It was a good chance for people to come and have a look at what Headway is all about and for some of the clients to show off their art.”
