Fundraiser Spotlight!

Heather's sponsored Skydive - 7th June 2024

The Sky is no limit for Heather!

On June 7th 2024, Heather took to the skies and completed a Skydive at Langar Airfield, and has so far raised over £3,300 in the process!

Heather has been a firm supporter of ours, and we are really honoured and thrilled with this incredible achievement!

From everyone at Headway, a very big THANK YOU!

“14 months ago, a stroke turned our lives upside down. The Leicester Headway Day Centre has been a literal lifesaver for us”  – Heather

Thank you for thinking of Headway Leicester!

As a small independent charity, we couldn’t continue our work without your support.  


We are responsible for raising all the money we need to rent premises, pay staff, run services and develop new initiatives.


The majority of the cost of running Headway services comes from fee income (local authorities/personal budgets and private funding) however not all our members are eligible to receive statutory support.

Can you become a #HeadwayHero and fundraise for us?

Your support can help us to make a positive difference to the lives of survivors of brain injury. 

Run, trek, skydive, cycle, swim get muddy or come up with your own challenge!


Whether you are a seasoned runner or someone who wants to achieve a personal goal, why not lace-up your trainers and run for Headway Leicester?

If challenges aren’t your thing then you could host a cake sale, or suggest a zany dress up day at work!

If you would like to fundraise on behalf of Headway Leicester please contact the Fundraising office for more information.

Donate or fundraise in memory of someone

Donating or fundraising in someone’s memory is a very special way to celebrate the life of a loved one, benefiting others who have been affected by brain injury.


  • Make a donation in their name
  • Collect at a funeral or memorial (you might choose to do this by asking for donations instead of flowers)
  • Take on a fundraising challenge

    If you have any questions about donating in memory of someone you can get in touch with us at 

We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.


Collection tin support

Collecting your spare change can help us do even more for local brain injury survivors and their families.


Please contact us if you are planning an event and would like some collection boxes.


We are looking for more locations for our collection tins, if you or a local business in your area could make a home for one, please get in touch!
