Brain injury charity calling for new volunteers at Pershore shop

Evesham Editorial 13th Jun, 2024 Updated: 13th Jun, 2024   0

A NATIONAL brain injury charity urgently needs more volunteers in Pershore to help it continue its vital work supporting brain injury survivors and their loved ones.

Headway’s charity shop on High Street is looking for friendly people to volunteer their time in several ways, including greeting and serving customers, sorting donations, and ensuring the shop floor remains tidy and welcoming.

Headway head of retail, David Bryne said: “Our Headway Pershore shop is very busy, so we desperately need more kind, positive people to join our much-valued team. No experience is necessary, and we would be really happy to provide volunteers with training and support.”

Every year, around 350,000 people are admitted to hospital with a brain injury. That is equivalent to one person every 90 seconds. Brain injuries can be sustained in several ways, including as a result of a stroke, brain tumour or accident.

Headway works UK-wide to improve life after brain injury by providing vital support, advocacy, and information services to brain injury survivors and their families.

David added: “The money raised from sales in our charity shops ensures that we can continue to offer vital support to those affected by brain injury. Volunteering is also a fantastic way to learn new skills, make new friends, and to feel more connected to your community.”




The charity is looking to hear from anyone who can spare us a few hours a week. To find out more visit the shop or call 01386 552301.
