Join us on a pre-arranged fundraising activity.
Here is one for our Horsey fans! We are thrilled that Mary King – MBE as Patron of our charity has kindly offered to do a course walk round the infamous Badminton course! She will enlighten us on how she intends to approach each fence and regale us with her wonderful stories.
The guided walk will take place on Friday the 3rd May 2013 in the afternoon; the cost is a minimum donation of £40 per person. To book your place please contact Emily Honey via email firstname.lastname@example.org and make your payment at www.justgiving.com/marykingbadminton.
Places are limited and these events are always sold out so early booking is advised. Mary does walk at a fast pace so this event may not be suitable for those with disabilities.
Zipslides UK have been successfully running zip slides across the iconic Newcastle Tyne Bridge for the past five years. The zip slide starts from the Newcastle side of the bridge and travels diagonally across the River Tyne for 230m before finishing HMS Calliope on the Gateshead side. The minimum age for this event is 16, and participants between 16 and 18 require parental consent.
To book your individual places on this events, go to http://www.zipslidesuk.co.uk/events/tyne-bridge/23, or contact our Fundraising Assistant, Emily Honey.
What action will you take? An estimated 1 in 30 children and young people in Britain will sustain a brain injury. And yet very few people are aware of this ‘hidden disability’, often knowing nothing about it until it happens to their family. During Action for Brain Injury Week, can you help us raise awareness? Can you take Action and let everyone know why you’re doing it? Can you help us raise much needed funds?
Action for Brain Injury Week gives us a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of brain injury and how it affects families across Britain. Anyone affected by an adult brain injury knows how life changing this can be but the outcomes for children who sustain a brain injury can be just that bit more uncertain.
A child’s brain develops until their mid-20s so it’s hard to predict a final outcome. Often difficulties don’t arise until teenage years when puberty, hormonal changes and changing social dynamics take hold. Sometimes problems are simply dismissed as ‘typical teenage behaviour.’
The Child Brain Injury Trust provides vital emotional support to families and helps them – and the professionals working with them – to understand childhood brain injury and what the long term effects might be.
You can help us to do this by taking Action!

What better way to support the Child Brain Injury Trust during Action for Brain Injury Week than to abseil off the Europa Hotel in Belfast? We have an exclusive 15 places available, and are looking for people to face their fear and abseil down the iconic Europa Hotel in Belfast.
