Headway News - December 2020
- 2 December 2020
It’s that time of the year again, Christmas. For some Christmas is a time for celebration, a time to spend with friends and family, a time to take a break and go on holiday. For others it’s a time of loneliness, a time where many organisations shut their doors for a few weeks, a time where support avenues seem to take a break, but where personal needs don’t. Whatever your circumstances are this Christmas, reach out to others. A phone call, text message or visit can make all the difference to a friend or acquaintance and it makes us, who reach out, feel good too. Our Headway community is always supportive and hospitable, thanks to you, our clients and supporters, and thanks as well to our staff.
Here's wishing everyone a very enjoyable Christmas and let’s all look forward to a happy and fulfilling 2021.
