2020 Christmas Card and Calendar competition winners
For the sixth year running, people living with a brain injury have submitted a piece of creative work in the hope that it is chosen for our 2020 calendar. A separate piece of artwork is also selected for the 2019 Christmas card.
These calendars are sent to hospitals, clinics and groups that provide pivotal services to those with acquired brain injury in Scotland.
We were overwhelmed to receive an incredible 175 entries from over 22 brain injury groups across Scotland. It did make it incredibly difficult though for our judges to choose only 14 winners for the 2020 calendar and 2019 Christmas Card.
An awards ceremony was held on Tuesday 10th December at the DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Central to celebrate these very well deserved winners. It was here that they were presented with a certificate and £20 gift voucher, as well as a cheque for £200 being donated to their local support group.

Kirsten Smith, CSR Manager at Digby Brown said: "For many people living with a brain injury, the events and social life they get from local groups is a life-line.
"We are delighted to organise an event that encourages those with brain injuries to express themselves through photography, art and creative writing and celebrates their wonderful talents."
