Lawyers at sister companies Medical Accident Group and Harrison Clark Rickerbys are letting it go to their heads when they don silly hats for the day to raise money for Headway Worcestershire on Friday (May 24).
The charity, which is part of the national Headway network, is almost entirely self-funded, so donations are vital. It supports people who have suffered a brain injury after traumatic experiences, illnesses or other accidents, providing personalised rehabilitation programmes.
It helps people to work towards regaining daily living skills, to improve life after brain injury, and has day centres in Kidderminster, Bromsgrove and Worcester, where sessions are focused around practical and social activities. It also offers an outreach service.
Peter Savage, partner with Medical Accident Group (MAG), said: “An acquired brain injury will often have a devastating impact on not only the individual but also their family. The nature of Headway Worcestershire, their clients and the work they do, is exactly what we at MAG care about most, and we want to do all we can to help them to support more people across the county.”
Both firms are taking part in the fundraising effort, so visitors and shoppers at the Cathedral Square end of Worcester might see some interesting headgear on Friday.
Medical Accident Group is dedicated to working for those who have suffered medical negligence or a serious personal injury. Its leading lawyers are amongst the most experienced in the country.
