Wynne-Jones team smash Headway fundraising target

The  team at Wynne-Jones have raised over £2,000 in 2017 for people fighting to rebuild their lives after a traumatic brain injury, Headway, after the charity was selected as the firm's charity partner for 2017-2018. 

Initially the firm set a fundraising target of £1,500 over the two years. However, thanks to the determination of staff across its Cardiff, Cheltenham, London, and Telford offices, over £2,127 has been raised to date. The funds will help to support the charity’s work to improve the lives of people who have suffered a brain injury, by offering support, services and information to survivors, their families and carers. Amy Kasprzyca, Senior Marketing Executive at Wynne Jones IP, said it was a privilege to support the charity which provides priceless support to thousands of people across the UK. Kasprzyca said: “Headway is a charity which has made such a vast difference to the lives of thousands of people who have sadly suffered a traumatic brain injury.

“Not only does it offer invaluable support to those directly affected to help them rebuild their lives, it also guides their families through a potentially challenging time, and even offers advice and information to professionals in support services and legal fields to ensure the continued care of survivors across the UK.

“It has been a pleasure to raise vital funds for Headway’s fantastic work this year. Our staff have united behind this cause and we hope that the money raised will enable them to continue their amazing work.”

Wynne Jones IP will continue to fundraise in 2018 for Headway with events being organised throughout the year.

Kasprzyca added: “Our team are more than ready to throw themselves into fundraising once again this year, and we look forward to raising as much as possible for Headway in 2018.”
