Headway Christmas Card and 2016 Calendar competition winners announced

People from headway

To mark the festive season, we asked members from across Headway - the brain injury association to take part in a Christmas Card and Calendar competition.

This is the fourth year that we have run this competition, inviting members from Headway groups around Scotland to enter a piece of creative work – photos, illustrations or creative writing – which could be part of a seasonal calendar. 

The winning artwork for this year was formally announced at an awards ceremony hosted in Glasgow on Thursday 10th December 2015 with each winner receiving a cheque for £300. Calendars will be sent to hospitals, clinics and others across Scotland. You can find a full list of winners below – huge congratulations to everyone involved!

“I’m delighted to congratulate all our winners and would like to thank Headway groups from across Scotland for taking part and contributing so many great entries.  We are delighted to have organised this competition and support the life-changing work that Headway do to help people living with a brain injury throughout the country

“Brain injury can often be a hidden disability but no-one has to live with it alone.  Digby Brown are proud to have worked with Headway and other charities in the field for many years and will continue to offer our support in any way we can.”

Headway and Digby Brown

We have worked closely with Headway for a number of years, providing welfare and legal advice as well as supporting conferences throughout the year. They work tirelessly to improve life after brain injury, providing support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as to professionals in the field.
