The Well-Being Event held in November was a great success and we had 2 VIP’s in attendence, The Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Northampton. Spending the evening with us and taking time to look around the unit, which looked fantastic decorated for our Christmas events, they visited the many stalls that had booked for the evening, stalls that were very varied.
From a lady Psychic giving readings, someone providing Swedish massage, another lady giving Indian head massage and tables for beauty products, jewellery, Christmas gifts, hand-made crafts and some very popular decorated cupcakes.
The Mayor and Lady Mayoress even bought some of their Christmas gifts whilst they were here. It was actually their first visit to Headway Northampton and they viewed with interest all the work completed by our service users as well as the WNDC award winning garden, festooned as it is at the moment with Christmas trees and sparkling lights all ready for Santa (and Elvis) at the forthcoming Christmas Party.
Both said they were very impressed with the all work that was on show and it was a wonderful evening with a great response from the public that raised £800. Money that will be used to provide Christmas festivities for our service users and their families.
Our thanks go to everyone that helped make this such a fantastic event.
