Recovery Fundraiser

Doctor Who star David Tennant – who last year appeared in the one-off BBC One drama Recover – has provided some autographs for a brain injuries charity.

1000 cards have been signed to sell online to raise money for Headway Essex, where he visited to prepare for his role in Recovery. David later became Patron of the charity.

“I am absolutely delighted to be able to help Headway raise the profile of brain injury,” said David. “While researching my role in Recovery, I spent time at Headway Essex where I observed some of the group sessions as well as chatting to some of the members. It was a truly humbling experience. There was so much hope, humour and positivity, mixed with occasional anger and sadness.

“It was a very powerful experience, seeing first-hand the effects brain injuries can have on people. It made me realise just how lucky I am and brings fresh meaning to the phrase ‘there but for the grace of God go I’. Headway is a wonderful organisation and one I am only too happy to help,”

You can order a card via the Headway Essex website, for £20 each.

The very best of luck to Headway Essex with this fundraiser.
