During 2013 Headway in West Kent celebrated 25 years of supporting those living with the effects of brain injury.
Supporters participated in a number of challenges, within a theme of 25. Examples: 25 muffins baked, 25 crochet items sold, 25 ladies for lunch, 25 mile walk/cycle/row and run, 25 shirts ironed and 25 minutes singing.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the challenges. . . . Although possibly not our manager, Lisa who completed the Virgin London Marathon!
In 2011 volunteer Astrid ran a set of creative writing sessions, enabling members to explore poetry as a means of self expression. The sessions were a huge success, the first seven culminating in a presentation at Trinity Theatre and Arts Centre in Tunbridge Wells. Following this, volunteer Kathy suggested publishing the poems in a book to take them to a wider audience, and took on the role of editor.
The poetry enabled members to express pent-up emotions as well as their creative ideas: in the book there are soaring highs, angry rumblings and dark lows, a love of nature and a sense of wonder.
Poetry in Mind consists of eleven chapters, each dealing with a different subject or type of poem and can be purchased from our online shop.
