Hats off to pupils helping brain injury charity

Hats off to pupils helping brain injury charity

PUPILS at St Mary’s School in Henley wore hats to school to raise awareness about brain injury.

More than 100 children brought their favourite headware to the independent school in St Andrew’s Road in support of Headway Thames Valley, which is based at Brunner Hall in Greys Road.

This was to mark Brain Injury Week, which highlights the wider effects of brain injury on the sufferer’s family, friends and colleagues.

The Friends of St Mary’s School have raised more than £1,500 for the charity over the last six months.

Some of the charity’s clients wore hats during the charity’s spring concert where the Headway Choir were among the performers and a collection raised £136.15.

The charity’s quiz night at the Salisbury Conservative Club in Queen Street, Henley, earlier this month raised £1,060.

Fund-raising manager Zoe Lane said “All funds raised will be supporting our work to improve the lives of local people affected by brain injury, helping them to rebuild their lives and regain their independence.”
