Owl Day 181018Owl Day Thursday 18th October 2018 - click here 

On Thursday 18th October 2018 Headway South Bucks held a special "Owl Event". To start the day everyone was able to enjoy a selection of Owl related activities. As you can see from the photos there was an Owl wordsearch and a selection of Owl adult art therapy. We made Owls from facecloths which were very popular as well as feather collage Owls. Our creativity was challenged by the Owl shaped biscuits that were available to decorate with icing before eating! Another popular activity was the Owl money banks which were decorated with porcelain pens. Scratch art and wooden Owl key rings were also on offer.

After all this creativity we enjoyed a fish and chip lunch followed by a selection of yummy cakes! The highlight of the day was a visit from Colin Sutherland from Wings of Freedom. He came to talk to us and show us his beautiful birds. Firstly we met Bob, a Falcon, followed by Rocky the Barn Owl. Possibly the most entertaining visitor was Norman, a European Eagle Owl who happily sat on the floor in the middle of the hall completely unfazed by us. Lastly we met Bert the baby Tawny Owl who everyone thought was very cute.

As you can see from the photo gallery the Owls were very popular and a number of clients were delighted to be able to hold them.

Finally everyone was given an Owl party bag containing Owl shaped Haribo sweets!

Hurley Regatta – An "Oar-some" charity fundraiser! - Saturday 18th August 2018

Hurley Regatta 180818

This year HSB was the chosen charity for the Hurley Regatta. Our charity was put forward by Steve and Jane Rider who live in the village of Hurley. 
The regatta has been celebrating this event for the past 46 years. It was a mix  of races, tug of war, fair ground rides and fun for all the family.
We had an array of lovely raffle prizes which included a donation from Henley House hotel, afternoon tea at the Compleat Angler, Beauty voucher from “Time” in the village, 3 food hampers and numerous other donations.
We managed to raise £778 from the raffle alone. The surplus income will come to Headway South Bucks.  

Thank you to David Burfitt and all the committee members for making the day a huge success for Headway South Bucks.
