BBC East Midlands Today interview special Headway volunteer

Wed 05 Jun 2019

BBC East Midlands Today has covered the story of one of Headway's shop volunteers to help us promote national Volunteers' Week. 

Football fanatic Stewart was eagerly awaiting England's opening match against Russia when a group of hooligans attacked him from behind.

He suffered two near-fatal blows to the head, first with a chair and then with an iron bar. Stewart was rushed to hospital and spent the next few months fighting for his life in a coma before returning home.

Following his extensive injuries, 50-year old Stewart found that volunteering at the Headway Hinckley shop helped him to re-establish a sense of normality that he thought he had lost forever.
