David Tennant’s Video Of Support For The Headway Essex Christmas 35 Campaign

David Tennant has sent a message of support from the set of his new drama, Around The World In 80 Days,  for Headway Essex’s Christmas 35 Campaign. 

Watch it below: 

The charity offers support to adults living with acquired brain injury and celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2020, a year that has been challenging worldwide for charitable organisations. To try to end the year on a positive note, the Colchester-based organisation has just launched its Christmas fundraiser with a little help from its patron, David Tennant. 

David Tennant became involved with Headway Essex in 2006 when researching for his character in the BBC television drama Recovery. David played a building site manager who suffers a debilitating brain injury in a car crash and visited the day care centre in Colchester to learn more about the devastating impact of such injuries on individuals and their families. 

In their new campaign, Headway Essex are asking our supporters to either raise or donate £35 to the charity to help them reach their target of £5000. They would also love to hear your stories of how Headway Essex has helped you with the view to inspire and encourage people to donate. 

If you're unable to donate, there are other ways you can help by fundraising, for example: 

- Give something up during the campaign (coffee/tea/sugar, etc.) and donate the money saved 

- Ask family and friends for donations to Headway Essex instead of Christmas presents 

- Take on a walking/running/cycling challenge and raise sponsorship

A special keepsake from David Tennant 

To show their appreciation, the first 250 people who raise or donate £35 (or more) will receive a special thank you by way of a card signed by the Headway Essex Patron, David Tennant.
