'New Year, New Me' - Hoohaah!

'New Year, New Me' - Hoohaah!

5th January, 2017

Have you made any New Year resolutions?

Maybe you would like to get fit for 2017?

Perhaps you have considered doing some charity work or offering your time and skills as a volunteer?

We are making arrangements for a series of events that can help fulfil your ‘New Year, New Me’ resolutions.

We have been chosen to be 2017 Charity of the Year for Hoohaah – which puts on a series of races at local National Trust venues. Of course, these are an ideal opportunity to train up and get fit and take part in a fun event at a beautiful location, while raising money for charity – either as an individual or as part of a team.

To find out more or enter for the events, visit the Hoohaah website.

These events represent a significant opportunity for Headway Cambridgeshire to raise funds, and to raise awareness of the effects of brain injury and how our charity supports brain injured adults.

When and where?

Events in support of Headway Cambridgeshire, arranged by Hoohaah
  • Childerley Estate, 23 April
  • Wimpole, 21 May
  • Hatfield Forest, 18 June
  • Thetford Forest, 9 July
  • Wimpole, 8 October

How can I help?

As part of our commitment to helping make these events a success, we need to supply stewards for the events so we are currently recruiting volunteers. We are looking for anyone who would be able to help out at one or more – or even all if possible, of the upcoming events.

If you are interested in supporting us by volunteering at one or more of the events, please do let us know as we are recruiting volunteer stewards now. Email: volunteering@headway-cambs.org.uk

There may be other events at which we need support during the year in addition to our hub-based volunteering needs. Keep watching our website and social media for more details.

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.
