Making Headway with our Charity of the Year 2022

After receiving lots of brilliant applications from very worthy causes, we’re delighted to announce that Headway Lincolnshire is our charity of the year for 2022!

As always the decision was a tough one to make, but as a team we felt that we could help make a difference for a cause that is not talked about often enough.

Headway Lincolnshire supports survivors and their families across the county in the aftermath of a life-changing brain injury.

It is the only charity of its kind in the area, and it offers a wide range of support, for example rehabilitating those who have suffered a stroke and helping the survivors of assaults and attacks or life-changing car or sporting accidents.  

Headway Lincolnshire also provides dedicated support for carers and families of injured loved ones through free counselling and a carers’ support group, as well as social meetings such as bowling and meals out.

Ann-Marie Smith, Co-ordination and Development Officer, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Shooting Star for their support of Headway Lincolnshire.

“Relationships with local and highly respected companies like Shooting Star help us to raise awareness of the vital work we do and the wide-ranging services available to brain injury survivors and their families in Lincolnshire.

“We are very impressed by Shooting Star and the great work they do. We really value them choosing us as their charity of the year and are looking forward to the year ahead with the team.”

2022 marks the 14th year of our charity of the year initiative, through which we help local good causes raise their profile through pro bono marketing, PR, digital and event support. Our past beneficiaries include the Bearded Fishermen, Help Us Grieve (HUG) and Jerry Green Dog Rescue to name a few.
