5th March, 2014

On behalf of all clients, volunteers, staff and trustees, we would like to express our sorrow on hearing about the death of Maurice Reynolds, a lifelong friend and volunteer for Headway Cambridgeshire.

He had played such an important role when Headway Cambridgeshire began back in 1989 and then through the years, regularly volunteering in one capacity or another up until his ‘retirement’ last June.  He was utterly committed to supporting people with a brain injury and we cannot over state how much he will be missed.

We would like to pass our condolences on to his widow Margaret, on behalf of everyone at Headway.

There will be a private service for Maurice’s family on Thursday 6 March 2014, followed by a service to celebrate his life at St Giles Church, Castle Street, Cambridge at 2.30 pm.

We published a news article about Maurice's retirement from Headway Cambridgeshire here and the Cambridge News has a very nice article telling some of Maurice’s amazing life here.

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.
