Read David Tennant's Latest Patron Message To Headway Essex

David Tennant has sent his annual message to Headway Essex for their latest newsletter. Headway Essex is a Chelmsford-based organisation that provides support and advice for people who have acquired a brain injury. They work through their Day Centre in Chelmsford, which provides rehabilitation activities and via their community support service. David has been the Patron of the charity since 2007 when he visited the centre as part of his research into playing the role of Alan Hamilton in the BBC drama Recovery. 

David says:
I am always amazed when I see the good work that is happening all over the world through charitable organisations and I know that this is only possible due to the commitment and passion of the staff and volunteers who serve their community in this way.

That is why I am proud to be Patron of Headway Essex and would like to say a special thanks to all the volunteers who work tirelessly to support this cause.

Volunteering at Headway Essex is about helping others and having a positive impact on people’s well-being. I can think of no better way for people to connect with their local community than by volunteering for a local cause, which can deliver a positive and meaningful impact on the community as a whole. It is also a great way to learn new skills, gain work experience and meet new friends. There are so many ways to get involved as a volunteer and absolutely anybody can be a volunteer; whether you wish to support activities at the Headway Centre, help with activities in the community or help with fundraising.

So in these continuing challenging times for charities I would like to salute all the volunteer heroes who tirelessly give their time to charitable causes everywhere and to all the supporters of Headway Essex who give so generously to this worthy cause.

I hope like me you will continue to support Headway Essex and help make a lasting and significant impact on the lives of individuals and their families and carers, struggling to cope with the life changing effects of brain injury.
