Activity weekend LAN goes digital

Tue 24 Mar 2020

Headway’s annual Look Ahead in the North (LAN) event was set to take place last weekend in the beautiful grounds of Kielder Forest, but due to the coronavirus outbreak it was sadly cancelled.

But that didn’t stop Headway groups and branches from across the region coming together to laugh, dance, sing and keep sprits high in the midst of all the uncertainty – albeit online.

The event organisers, Amy Crosby and Nicola Hughes – both from Headway Darlington – set up a Facebook group called LAN online party.

More than 60 brain injury survivors, carers and professionals from across the Headway network came together virtually on Saturday for a night to remember.

The evening consisted of a general knowledge quiz, Hats for Headway Day competition and the renowned LAN’s Got Talent where contestants showcased their creative flair. The well-received event ended with an online disco, where members of the group shared their favourite songs for all to listen to.

Amy Crosby, who helped organise the event, said: “A huge thank you goes out to everyone who has taken part in what really was a great night! In these challenging times it’s so important that we can all focus on supporting each other - virtually if needed!”

The Facebook group has remained active and has now become a place for members to chat, support one another and cast sights to LAN 2021, which promises to be bigger and better than ever.
