£2k in 2023 to transform lives of brain injury survivors 

Last year, in our biggest and record-breaking year, we were able to provide £2,000 in funds supporting Oxford Head Injury Service (OHIS), based in Kennington.

Thanks to our amazing supporters and our generous community who supported and got behind our events and fundraising activities, we have been able to donate £2k to this incredible organisation that supports adults living with brain injuries.

Funds were raised through events like our great gatsby ball, football tournament, party on the park, raffles, tombolas, and more.

Formerly Headway, OHIS provide care and support to adults and their carers living with the impact of brain injuries.

It’s an organisation close to our heart, especially Andy. They’ve helped him now for 12 years since he was 23, and they’ve helped him regain so much of his essential life skills, including increasing his confidence and relearning some skills, and this includes regaining his artistic skills.

We’ve supported this local charity ever since, and to date, we’ve reached close to £25k!

In December we also able to provide around £100 worth of gifts for the ARC from all new paint sets and brushes, colouring sets, mindfulness activity books and games, all through our 9th #Sleigh2Give appeal last Christmas.

OHIS is one of our key charities, and in 2017 £7k of our tireless fundraising enabled us to fund six specialised neuro exercise machines for the neurological rehabilitation gym within the centre.

Our continued funds make a very real difference and lifelong impact on the lives of all those that this incredible organisation with the most amazing team of care workers.

We can never say thank you enough for the fantastic support we receive from all those who support our charity that enables us to keep on changing, transforming, and saving lives, and thank you for helping us to provide another invaluable donation to aid this organisation, awarded BBC Radio Oxford’s Best Community Group, and so many other amazing causes and individuals that thanks to you we can keep on helping all year round ❤️💕
