A personal message from Sir Benjamin Slade

“I am hosting a social and business networking event at Maunsel House, 6-8.30pm on Wednesday 12th September being opened by Tara Newley, daughter of Joan Collins.  Please see the attached flier for more information.
 Tickets are £12 with £2 going to Headway Somerset and should be booked in advance by calling 01278 661076 or emailing  
 I would love to see you, please bring some friends. 

Project 2012.

The simple aim of the site is to raise £20,000 for our charity by inviting 200 individuals, firms or organisations to donate £100 before December 31st

We would like you to ask at least ten of your own contacts, clients etc to let them know that you support Headway Somerset and how pleased you would be if they considered becoming a Project 2012 supporter too.

Benefits for Supporters

Business members, community groups  and individuals can have their name and website link featured on our specially created Project 2012 website and use the special  logo to display to demonstrate your support to our cause and will be listed in the Roll of Honour in the Supporters section.

Headway Somerset is the only organisation of its kind in the county helping brain injury survivors plus their families and carers. It provides specialist support and activities to help people re-learn skills, and gain some new ones, to help them live as independent a life as possible after brain injury.

Raising £20,000 is just part of our £130,000 fundraising target for 2012. That’s why we want you to join up to Project 2012 so we don’t have to cut back providing essential activities which make such a difference to our clients rehabilitation needs.

What will £100 do?

·         Fund 10 brain training programmes to improve cognitive skills

·         Help run 3 IT tutor sessions

·         Fund 3 yoga and relaxation therapy groups

·         Provide 10 hours of Outreach

·         Run 2 Art classes or 6 Craft sessions

·         Provide specialist help for someone to re-learn to read and write

Places available on the Tandem Skydive on Sunday 23rd September at Dunkeswell Airfield on the Devon Somerset border.  There is free camping and we are having a post-jump BBQ afterwards.
