A charity which supports people with head injuries has been boosted by a £2,000 donation.

Headway Norfolk and Waveney in Lynn were presented with the large cheque by Liz and Mike Plumb, Molly Tee and Jenny Copman.

The money was raised through a number of events including a steam engine party, bric-a-brac stalls and at the Sandringham Flower Show.

Headway clients in Lynn celebrated the cheque presentation with a cream tea and homemade scones.

Liz Plumb who held the steam engine party at her Long Acres Caravan Park in Heacham, said “I have been involved with Headway since 1986, they supported me in the past and now I am supporting them. We need more people to know and be aware about serious brain injury.”

Laura Jones, director of client services, said: “In these challenging economic times this donation will make a real difference to us, and we are very grateful for all the time, effort and support that has been given.”

It is estimated that across the UK there are well over 500,000 people of working age living with permanent disabilities as a result of head injury
