A wonderful day at the ABI Games

Mon 07 Aug 2023

Headway Worcester held their annual Queen Elizabeth II ABI Games this summer at the University of Worcester Sports Arena. The event, attended by dozens of brain injury survivors and groups from all over the UK, was once again a great success filled with good spirit and connection.

Categories included sports such as indoor bowls, walking tennis and walking football; games like Uno, Memory Game and Chess; and life skills, such as growing sunflowers, baking bread and making preserves. 

All participants received a medal, certificate, and a baseball cap for taking part.  

"Getting here was a big deal, but I love the organised chaos of it all. I am competitive and I'm looking forward to the cricket!"

(Lester, HW Worcester)  

"This has been my dream for the last 7 years. To use sport to help the community, it has such a positive impact on the lives of people living with brain injury."

(Andy, Headway Sefton)

“Headway Worcester has been a lifeline for us following my husband's brain injury. Headway has given support to me when I've needed it, and support and friendship to Gareth. This is such a fabulous event, it's about trying new things, giving an achievement to someone in something that they otherwise wouldn't feel they could do."

(Katy and Gareth) 

"Headway is about breaking down boundaries – and seeing so many groups here from all over and seeing them all work together is amazing. And when you see the smiles... it’s not about the negative here, it’s all about the positive."

(Ben Cooper from BBC’s Bargain Hunt) 

Well done to the Headway Worcester team for putting on such a great event. See you again next year!
