Edinburgh Headway Group is an independent Scottish charity.
You may be shocked to hear that every 90 seconds someone in the UK is admitted to hospital with a Brain Injury!
Yet despite this there remains a lack of funding and knowledge about this ‘invisible’ condition.
To maintain our work we are dependent on voluntary donations. Currently, we have to raise 83% of our income to support our services. Hence, fundraising is vital to us.
By choosing to support our charity you are choosing to help make a remarkable difference in improving the quality of life of a person with a brain injury and for this we would be most grateful.
Would you like to be part of our campaign to raise awareness and raise vital funds for Edinburgh Headway Group? This is a great time to inspire others to get involved to promote our work and/or sponsor an event.
Below are some ideas just to get you started but feel free to choose your own and tell us all about it - we would be happy to publicise it, and share it on social media.
