Thorneycroft director raises £1,047.50 for Headway
MARK Belfield, director of Thorneycroft Solicitors, undertook the Great Manchester Run back in May to raise money for Headway. Headway is the UK-wide charity that works to improve life after brain injury. It provides support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, and also to professionals in the health and legal fields. Mark heads up the catastrophic injury team at Thorneycroft Solicitors, specialists in dealing with brain injury claims, and deals with Headway to help the support and recovery of his clients. Mark presented the fundraising cheque for £1,047.50 at the Stockport branch office to Janet Penny, chairperson for Stockport and Manchester Headway. Helping raise the money were business partners of Thorneycroft, as well as friends, family and people whose lives have been affected by brain injury. Mark said: “Headway is a charity close to my heart as it has played such an important role in the recovery of many of my clients. Seeing first-hand the work it does at the Stockport branch office was really inspiring. The organisation depends predominantly on volunteers and donations and the reaction I received made my donation feel incredibly worthwhile.” Headway has a network of centres around the country offering advice, information, activities and a listening ear. It offers an opportunity to socialise, make new friends and try new activities. The charity provides a range of information, advice and signposting.
