Headway & Port Vale Join Up To Raise Awareness Of Head Injuries

8 December 2014

Charity To Give Out Flyers At Coventry Fixture

Port Vale is working alongside Headway North Staffordshire to raise awareness of head injuries and the support offered in the local area.

 

Headway is the leading UK charity dedicated to the support of people who have sustained a brain injury and aims to promote a wider understanding of all aspects of such injuries.

 

They provide rehab services including physiotherapy, life skills and cognitive therapies as well as information for those with head injuries, their families, carers and relevant professionals.

 

The charity will be at the Valiants’ Sky Bet League One game against Coventry City handing out flyers to help raise the profile of Headway.

 

Sandra Hall, chief officer of the North Staffordshire charity, visited Vale Park on Monday afternoon with some of the people they have helped and met Vale’s Tom Pope and Sam Johnson.

 

She said: “It’s really good that we can liaise with the club because it’s our nearest football team really.

 

“We’re a rehabilitation centre that’s for people who suffer with acquired or traumatic brain injury so it’s a great bit deal for them to come up and meet the players.

 

“Also for them to come on Saturday [to the Coventry game] as well. There will be about 16 of us all around the stadium handing out leaflets about what we do.”

 

“So it’s going to help raise our profile in the community and where better to do it with all these people that are attending the football match?”
