The greatest pleasure in life

It’s not what you might be thinking! For me it’s about giving. Just read tonight’s Cambridge Evening News’ “Living & Life” supplement and learn about the “lucky ones” at Headway Cambridgeshire, the brain injury charity, who survived horrific accidents and are now leading happy and fulfilled lives. I’m afraid there is no weblink.

I am a new trustee helping in a voluntary capacity to raise their profile with Press and PR. As a result, their excellent Chief Executive Kate Lewis was on Radio Cambridgeshire this week talking about the centre as it is national Brain Injury Awareness Week. I wrote a press release and phoned the CEN to bring it to their attention and, he presto, we ended up with having superb coverage in colour on the front page of the supplement, as well as two inside pages.

I was so overjoyed, so delighted that I immediately called Kate and she was excited about it too. This has really made my day. It is such an excellent charity, I feel so privileged to be part of it. I advise everyone I come in contact with through business that they should become involved in voluntary projects, that they should share their skills with the community. It is so rewarding and exhilerating – one of the greatest pleasures in life.

  1. Thanks Kate,

    It was such a pleasure for me to help a worthwhile cause like Headway. I look forward to getting to know Bobby and the other members too – they are all real champions!!!

  2. Ellee – thanks again for all your input into getting us this great article in Saturday’s CEN. I took a copy straight down to Bobby at the charity shop on Mill Road he works in on a Saturday and he was so thrilled. It’s been a busy month or so for us at Headway Cambridgeshire, the rest of the year should feel a bit more like plain-sailing! Kate
