Cwmbran based accountancy firm Green & Co will be holding a sponsored walk around Cwmbran in aid of the charity Headway Cardiff, an organisation that works with individuals who have suffered a brain injury, as well as their families, helping to improve their lives. The non-stop sponsored walk will take place on Wednesday 9th July.
Green & Co do several charity events throughout the year, with members of staff choosing the charities they would like to support. On this occasion, Director of Green & Co, Nick Park, has chosen Headway. Nick has a personal connection to the charity after his nephew Nathan spent six weeks in a coma after being assaulted in Cyprus. Doctors gave Nathan little chance of survival, but since receiving help from Headway, Nathan has achieved a remarkable physical recovery. This year Nathan competed in the London Marathon, raising £5,000 for the Headway and Green & Co would like to continue his fundraising effort with their sponsored walk.
“We are delighted to be raising money for Headway.” Said Nick Park. “They did wonderful job supporting my nephew following his coma and I am aware of other people who have benefited greatly from their help. We have had a lot of interest from other businesses in our area and look forward to meeting them as we pound the streets on Wednesday 9 July.”
