Sponsored cycle ride from Docking to Norwich after brain injury




After sustaining a brain injury, a Docking man is cycling 40 miles to raise money for a charity close to his heart.

Andrew Williams is currently cycling from his home in Docking to a Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust Board meeting in Norwich where he works.

Funds are being raised for Headway Norfolk and Waveney, a charity that aims to improve life after brain injury and stroke.

The ride will be split into two parts due to Mr Williams' brain injury.

He said he understands the importance of managing energy levels and reducing fatigue in order to maintain his health for his work as an associate non-executive director at the Trust Board meeting.

Mr Williams said: "Cycling 40 miles gives me the opportunity to connect with what really matters to me in my new life with a brain injury.

"These are good quality community care, supporting others with brain injuries and staying healthy through cycling, which I am fortunate to be able to do with the support of family and friends."

So far, Mr Williams has already raised over £1,000 for Headway who he volunteers for.

"Volunteering with Headway allows me to give something back for the support Headway gave my family and me when we needed it most," Mr Williams added.
