I am delighted to report that Ann Cumming was honoured with the Stephen McAleese Outstanding Contribution to Headway Award at the Headway Awards lunch today, held at the Dorchester in London.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Ann over the last 5 years or so, following my involvement with Headway Isle of Wight.

She is a worthy winner, who has made an enormous difference to people who have suffered a brain injury, together with their families, friends and carers over the last 25 years.

Ann was extremely humble and thought herself not deserving of the nomination let alone the win!  From my perspective, there was no one more deserving.

Through personal tragedy, she was thrown into the world of head injury and the lifelong consequences that resulted from it. She educated herself and set about improving services in her local area.  Initially, this was to help Ian who was injured in a car accident and those she got to know during his year in hospital.  Her legacy is that the services are still running today and as a result she has helped thousands over the last 25 years.

Ann was accompanied by husband John, son Ian, Joy Cleightonhills the chair of our Branch and myself.  I felt very privileged to share her day and be there to see her receive this thoroughly deserved recognition.
