Helping Headway make a difference
The Personal Injury team has made a £10,000 donation to brain injury association Headway’s North London team thanks to a trust administered by Fieldfisher.
Brain injury specialist Jill Greenfield, who is a patron of Headway, put forward a proposal to the trustees of the Southweare Samaritan Trust, a fund established by the partners of Waterhouse & Co in 1960 to make donations to organisations in respect of care for people who are disabled and/or suffering as a result of accidents and disease.
Jill says, “We have a strong and long-term relationship with Headway which provides invaluable support to people affected by brain injury. To be able to donate this funding will help the charity provide additional support and vital services including rehabilitation programmes, carer support, social re-integration, community outreach and respite care to those who need it most.”
Headway trustee Julie Bridgewater adds, “In these difficult times for charitable organisations, this donation is very welcome indeed and will help to provide us with the means to continue our important work in supporting those affected by brain injury, together with their family and friends.”
