Wendy has summed up the feelings of the Headway Cambridgeshire clients about the retirement of our outgoing Chief Executive, Mary Goode...
"It is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to our beloved leader. For at the end of the month, Mary Goode is to retire. Mary who has been our boss for four years will be greatly missed. She always has time to stop and talk with us and always a cheery hello or goodbye. Mary, we wish you well in your retirement and please don’t forget us – do come and visit us. Goodbye Mary."
Well said, Wendy!
Wendy has been sharing some thoughts on the benefits of going to live music - and the woes of negotiating public transport in a wheelchair...
Did you come to our Open Gardens / Carers' Week celebration on Saturday 13 June? We had lots to see and do in the garden and plenty to eat as well as cake & plant stalls. Wendy, one of our client bloggers, wrote about it:
"We had been preparing for weeks for the event and finally the day came for the Great Headway Garden Party – and it was raining – boy was it raining.
The bouncy castle didn’t turn up, so not a good start. But there was lots of fun to be had. A treasure hunt, a very tasty cake stall, and of course you could buy the famous Headway eggs. We also had the Jackson Creek band to entertain us (they were very good). So it wasn’t so bad after all, if only it hadn’t rained so much!"
“ The Hospital Brain Injury Co-ordinator became someone who absolutely understood how I felt, I didn’t need to explain. I could talk about my fears and worries. She was such a great support through the difficult days, but could also celebrate the small step successes, which was important to me. ”
