Shop at the Co-op: Headway charity in drive to raise vital funds

Solihull Editorial 29th Nov, 2020   0

BRAIN injury charity Headway Birmingham and Solihull is appealing for support after being chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund.

This follows a visit earlier in the year from Peter Nash, the Co-op’s local community fund coordinator, to the charity’s Leighton House brain injury centre in Rednal.

As a result the charity is urging Co-op members to select them as their local cause by visiting

Funds raised through the Co-op scheme will be used to provide opportunities for Headway’s brain injured clients and their families from across Birmingham and Solihull to enjoy a range of sports and wellbeing activities with the support they need to enable them to participate.

“Raising money towards sports is always a challenge for our charity, but it’s become harder than ever with the uncertainties created by Covid-19,” said Julie Wedgbury, Headway Birmingham & Solihull’s fundraising manager, said.

“We’re therefore really pleased to have been chosen by the Co-op and hope local people will help us make the most of the opportunity.

“Participation in sport helps at so many levels, and we are determined to keep our sports programme going with the help of the Co-op Local Community Fund.”

The Co-op now donates 2p in every pound spent on Co-op own-brand groceries to local grass-root projects, like Headway’s sports and wellbeing initiative.
