The annual Action for Brain Injury Week (ABI) organised by Headway will take place from 16 – 22 May 2022. This year’s ABI week will focus on what can be for many brain injury survivors, a hidden disability. ABI week will raise awareness and understanding of the often misunderstood symptoms of a brain injury, and work to alleviate the challenges, and frustrations survivors face.

Friday 20 May 2022 is Hats for Headway Day. Each year supporters of the charity come together and dig out their wackiest hats for a photograph, raising money in the process. A luxury prize is available for the individual who gets crowned the ‘Best Hat Winner’.
Hugh James has continued its tradition of taking part in the Hats for Headway Day, but this year with a twist. This year, members of the firm have combined forces and donned their best hats in a short video.
Hugh James has also extended support for this worthy cause with a donation to Headway Cardiff and South East Wales.
We encourage you all to wear your hats with pride on this year’s Hats for Headway Day and to make a donation if you can:
