Morrisons cash boost is perfect tonic for Headway patients

Solihull Editorial 27th Mar, 2021   0

HEADWAY Birmingham and Solihull will be able to open an onsite gym and therapy suite at their city brain injury centre thanks to a £13,948 donation from the Morrisons Foundation.

The funding boost will allow the charity to purchase gym equipment, safety mats and privacy partitioning to install in their rehabilitation and therapy centre. Having an onsite gym will help individuals suffering from brain injuries to follow their personal programme in a safe and supported environment.

Headway Birmingham & Solihull chief executive Sue Tyler said: “This grant will make the world of difference to us and our brain injured clients.

“And it couldn’t come at a better time. So many of our clients have been shielding at home during the coronavirus outbreak, with limited opportunity for exercise. These new facilities will help motivate them to get more active, improving their strength and stamina, and in turn, boosting their general health and wellbeing.

“Thank you so much to everyone involved in the decision to award us this grant.”

Joe Scargill of Morrisons Foundation said: “We know that Headway continues to deliver incredible work with people affected by brain injury even despite the barriers posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I’m delighted that we have been able to provide this grant to enhance their physiotherapy sessions.”
