Hats off to hard-working charity from Trethowans

18 May 2016

Stetsons, baseball caps and coloured wigs; not the usual attire for a solicitors’ office but staff at Trethowans cast aside their usual looks to raise money for a worthy cause on Friday 13th May.

Staff from all three offices sported unusual headwear as part of the annual Hats for Headway event, where people across the UK don hats for the Headway brain injury charity.

Trethowans is a long-time supporter of the charity, which provides vital support to help people improve their lives after a brain injury.

Tom Hartigan, head of Trethowans’ personal injury team in Salisbury and a trustee of Headway Salisbury, said: “We’ve seen first-hand the fantastic work that Headway does for people who have suffered brain injuries and we’re keen to do all we can to support the charity so it can continue its important mission.”

Trethowans’ Hats for Headway day raised £150 for each the charity’s local branches, which could be used to fund everything from its emergency information helpline to its emergency fund, which helps people dealing with the financial implications in the immediate aftermath of a brain injury.

The fundraising day forms part of Trethowans’ mission to undertake 150 good deeds in the local community in its 150th year. So far it has supported women’s theatre groups, dementia charities and local sports groups. Later this year a team of staff from its corporate team will take on the Three Peaks Challenge in aid of the Joe Glover Trust.
