Our team consists of Debra Morris, brain injury solicitor and Chair of Headway Derby, Alison Wright, brain injury case manager and Debra's daughter Katie Morris, aged 17.
Debra and Alison are both privileged to have worked for many years with some inspirational clients who, despite devastating and life changing brain injuries, go on to achieve progress in all different ways.   Rehabilitation and support is different for everyone but so vital to recovery but yet so underfunded.  Debra and Alison both recognise the difference that rehab and support can make to a person's life and are passionate about helping to support Headway Derby in reaching out to the wider community of Derbyshire and East Staffordshire which is something that their actions in doing this skydive can achieve by setting up a mobile Support Café. 
Debra and Alison are both terrified of jumping out of a plane but are prepared to face their fears to support this project. 
Katie on the other hand is a dare devil and looking forward to it but also wants to do this in support of such a worthwhile cause.

Event details


[color=black]The money raised from our Skydive will fund a much needed mobile version of Headway Derby's newly launched Support Café.  This mobile drop in service will allow them to reach out and help more brain injury sufferers in the wider Derbyshire and East Staffordshire areas, instead of having to travel into Derby City Centre.  Those who are affected by brain injury will be able to attend locally for advice, information or just a drink and a chat with people who understand.

Please note that we are trying to sort out gift aid and hope to be able to get this resolved soon. 
The members of the team are contributing towards this skydive personally for some but not all of the cost.  The cost that is to be taken out of raised funds will not be eligible for gift aid.

Please support us with whatever you can - much appreciated.[/color]
