Donation x2 to Brains Matter

Recently, Brains Matter welcomed to the centre in Tunbridge Wells Christine Forbes, President of Southborough and District Lions Club and Richard Hill President of the Tonbridge Lions. Two cheques, each for £600, were presented to Lisa-Rae Brough and Keith Bottrell.

Together, both Lions clubs made a very generous donation to Brains Matter so that they could buy new garden furniture for their clients to enjoy along with items for the greenhouse that will support the charity with their gardening project.

Brains Matter exists to support adults affected by brain injury, including families, carers and professionals. Services include an activity Centre in Tunbridge Wells where they offer a safe and friendly environment for those living with the effects of brain injury to spend time in a relaxed, informal setting. Activities are designed to be enjoyable as well as promoting cognitive and physical development e.g. creative writing, pottery and word games. The centre has a beautiful garden where clients can relax or join in with gardening which is led by one of the charity’s wonderful volunteers.

Brains Matter’s Community Wellbeing Service is for adults with an acquired brain injury to receive bespoke one to one support. Clients are supported by the experienced team with day to day tasks such as shopping, dealing with benefits and hospital and other medical appointments.

Brains Matter has just launched a new service: The Community Navigator. The charity has a member of staff working across hospitals in West Kent supporting families and recent sufferers of a brain injury. The Community Navigator can help with legal matters, additional support and benefits and housing during what can be a very traumatic time.

The charity also holds regular drop in sessions in Maidstone and Sevenoaks and is planning additional drop ins in the very near future.

Brains Matter has been providing services since 1988 and, through the generosity of others, can continue to be there for those in West Kent and beyond with a brain injury.
