Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins Pledges Support for Brain Injury Organisation

Toby Perkins, Labour Member of Parliament for Chesterfield, has pledged his support for a local charity dedicated to helping sufferers of brain injury.  

Mr. Perkins met with Peter Shaw, Chair of the North Derbyshire branch of Headway at the Old Whittington Gala on Saturday 26th June. The organisation provides opportunities and support to people affected by brain injuries. Those who have been affected by brain tumors and strokes often go on social events, including ten pin bowling, complementary therapy, along with indoor and outdoor leisure activities.

The charity is hoping to re-establish a new HQ to help its volunteer carers, professional workers and brain injury survivors carry continue doing an important job in the Chesterfield area. As well as caring for people of all ages, Headway also provides its members with information on issues such as home equipment, transport, and welfare benefits.

Mr. Perkins said:-

“It was great to meet Peter and his Headway team at the Old Whittington Gala. The organisation helps hundreds of people in Chesterfield and the surrounding areas who have been devastated by brain injuries”.

Peter Shaw added:-

“We were delighted to meet with Toby on Saturday and very much appreciate his support. We now hope to expand our volunteer base to ensure we develop our social rehabilitation scheme in North Derbyshire”.
