Headway Thames Valley chairman Dr Trevor Powell said: “Thank you so much, East Berkshire Golf Club. Your fund-raising has been amazing and is greatly appreciated.

“The welcome you gave us was a real tonic, leaving us all feeling a warm glow after visiting your clubhouse.

“Your fantastic donation will help support our Living with Brain Injury programme, which benefits the many brain injured people in the community with a ‘hidden’ disability, and our art therapy programme run at our resource centre.”
