Brushstrokes and Broomsticks to highlight brain injury

hlmb_brushstrokes_broomsticks-201016-sqWe are helping a brain injury charity that is promising a frightfully good time at its Brushstrokes and Broomsticks Halloween event on Sunday, October 30.

The art and spook festival will be held at The Platform in Morecambe from 2pm and is supported by Birchall Blackburn Law.

The event will be headlined by award-winning artist, Kelly Stewart, with a display of her traditional and vibrant screen-print artwork.

There is a children’s drawing competition, fairy door workshop, gift, craft and cake stalls. There will also be a tombola, raffle and free pumpkins for the first 30 children.

A spooky afternoon tea (£5 adults and £2.50 under 12s) will be served and a coven of witches from the Headway Lancaster and Morecambe Bay Choir will perform.

Janet Staff, chairperson of Headway Lancaster and Morecambe Bay, says: “With more than 1,000 head injuries a year in the Lancaster and Morecambe area, we desperately need to raise awareness of the life-changing consequences of brain damage and that we are here and ready to help and support victims, families and friends.

“Our Brushstrokes and Broomsticks Halloween event will be a horribly good afternoon of fun. There are loads of things going on, and volunteers and members of Headway Lancaster and Morecambe Bay will be on hand to tell you exactly what we do and why we are needed.”

Headway Lancaster and Morecambe Bay is a support and self-help group for those affected by any aspect of brain injury, and their families, friends, carers and associated medical professionals. The group provides practical and emotional support as well as a vibrant social environment with activities and exercise.
