Ipes chose Headway as its 2015 charity. Staff across the Ipes Group contributed to raising a total of £2,864 through a number of dedicated events such as taking part in Hats for Headway day, a charity Halloween Bake off and a Christmas jumper day.
Headway works throughout the UK and Channel Islands to help improve life after brain injury. They host regular social events for survivors, information evenings and a family support programme. The charity receives no government funding and relies solely on donations.
Philippa Stahelin, Executive Director, Headway Guernsey says, "Ipes have been amazing in terms of their enthusiasm and support for Headway. Over the past year I have met many of the staff who have gone the extra mile, dressing up at Halloween, making cakes and doing mad things to raise money for us."
"Without the support of companies like Ipes, we simply would not be able to support the amount of people we do, helping them get their lives back after serious brain injury. We are very grateful to all of the staff." Philippa concludes
Chris Merry, Ipes’ Chief Executive says, "We are delighted to have supported Headway. Our staff have really got behind our fundraising efforts and I hope we have been able to make a difference through our contribution."
