‘Rethink Your Drink’ This Christmas & Support People With a Brain Injury

1st December, 2016

Rethink Your Drink

From everyone at Headway Cambridgeshire we would like to thank you for your support in 2016 and wish you a very happy and peaceful Christmas. Throughout the year we have continued our mission to improve the lives of people following a brain injury and we couldn’t do this without our generous supporters and volunteers, so on behalf of all of our staff and clients – thank you.

At this time of year, whilst many of us are celebrating, there is a sharp rise in emergency admissions to hospital caused by an excessive consumption of alcohol. For instance hospital admissions related to alcohol increase by 377% on New Year’s Day.

Some of these admissions will be related to brain injuries. For these individuals this will be a life-changing event for them and their families.

That is why Headway Cambridgeshire is promoting ‘Rethink Your Drink’. We are asking people to cut down on their festive drinking by having one less drink during seasonal celebrations – whether that’s at a work party or a night out with friends – and then donating the cost of that drink – £5 – to Headway Cambridgeshire.

To support our campaign please either:


Text DRNK05 to 70070 or Visit our JustGiving Page
Text DRNK05 £5 to 70070 Rethink Your Drink
If you are an eligible UK taxpayer, please also allow us to claim Gift Aid on your behalf if you are eligible, which will turn your £5 donation into £6.25.

By supporting us you will be helping us to continue our work with brain injured people, whilst making sure you have a safe and enjoyable Christmas.

Warmest wishes for Christmas and New Year.

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.
