The Princess Royal will be in Worcester today to witness first-hand the work of a local brain injury charity.

Princess Anne will be attending Headway Worcestershire to officially open its new kitchen and meet some of the brain injury survivors the charity supports.

The Princess was due to visit the centre on March 2 but that trip was postponed at the last minute after the county was covered with snow and a severe weather warning was issued.

Headway Worcestershire, which is based in Gregory’s Mill Street, support brain injury survivors and their families from across the county, providing them with crucial rehabilitation opportunities, as well as the chance to socialise, develop and interact with others with similar challenges.

Kathryn Davis, chief executive of Headway Worcestershire, said everyone at the charity was thrilled and delighted to welcome the Princess to the charity.

She said: “It will be an opportunity to showcase our outstanding team and for our service users to share their stories with The Princess Royal of how acquired brain injury has changed their lives and their family’s lives, as well as the role Headway plays in supporting their recovery and future life.”

Jenny West sustained a brain injury after a stroke, which resulted in two brain haemorrhages in 2002.

She receives Headways outreach services in her home and attends the Worcester Well Being Hub.

She said: “It will be great that the Princess will see all the ways Headway helps people with brain injuries in this area. I really like The Princess Royal. She has a great spirit.”

Nigel Bourne, who suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2000, said: "It is a very proud moment for everyone at the charity.”
