GloWeek 2019

That’s it all over for another year, and once again we have been blown away by the support we received from you all. Keep sending in your event pictures to be added to our gallery.

There were a few dress down days with a lot of neon t-shirts and the occasional luminous tutu! It also seems like a lot of cake was consumed, and we mean A LOT of cake, any excuse to eat cake is ok by us! There were bake sales at Premier Medical and Focussed Healthcare and dress down days at FBC Manby Bowdler, Simpson Millar, Anthony Collins, NO5 Barristers’ Chambers and Frenkel Topping to name a few.

Our friends at Shoosmiths had a mad hatters tea party while Bush & Co held a silent disco!

If you have raised some funds through your own event you can easily pay through a one off donation on our website, or send us a cheque – whatever you prefer.

We love seeing your GloWeek pictures so please keep them coming.

 

Raising Awareness

Each year, we offer schools across the UK a chance to get involved in our autumn road safety campaign, Be Seen Not Hurt, as part of our GloWeek Campaign. Year on year, we are inundated with requests for information packs and visits from our specialist team which is incredible!  However, numbers have now reached the point where we simply cannot reach every school that requests a personal visit.

In 2019,  we are offering schools unique access to our training resources.  Simply by signing up to take part in GloWeek,  you will get access to our resources and materials to deliver your own Be Seen Not Hurt road safety session. The materials are aimed at children of primary school age.

As we are experts in childhood acquired brain injury, this is a road safety talk with a difference! Whilst we cover all the essential road safety information, we relate to how we can protect our amazing brains. We also talk about why our brains are just so amazing.

Be Seen Not Hurt runs from the 28th October – 1st November. If you are on half term this week, you can have GloWeek the week before, or the week after – whatever suits your school.

GloWeek is also a fundraising opportunity for our small charity which receives NO government funding for our work in England and Wales. If your school would like to help us to raise money by holding a small fundraising activity or event, please let us know and we will endeavour to send one of our specialist team into the school. Whilst they are there, they will host an assembly for you and deliver a presentation to the children who will benefit from their expertise and knowledge in this important field. You can register your event on our GloWeek page here

If you would prefer to receive our Assembly Pack, to run the session yourselves then please email glow@cbituk.org and we will send you everything you need.

What are you waiting for – do the bright thing and get glowing to raise vital funds for children and families devastated by brain injury. Request your Glow Pack today!
