Thanks to the support of customers at Tesco stores in Salisbury the Headway Salisbury and South Wiltshire’s Young Adults’ Social Group where fortunate enough to enjoy two trips to the theatre recently, funded through Tesco’s ‘Bags of Help’ scheme.
The group firstly enjoyed a trip to the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton back in November and thoroughly enjoyed the performance of Shrek The Musical. Following this, in early January the group visited Salisbury Playhouse to watch their latest pantomime ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Whilst the group have been to the pantomime at The Playhouse for the last few years, this trip was made even better with front row seats and a chance to meet some of the fantastic cast after the show!
A special thanks goes to the staff and volunteers at Salisbury Playhouse for making this possible. Now approaching its third year, Headway Salisbury and South Wiltshire’s Young Adults Social Group supports local young adults’ aged between eighteen and thirty five with acquired brain injuries, (for example following stroke, traumatic brain injuries, brain infections or injuries due to lack of oxygen).

Typical activities include things such as bowling, meals out, pub nights, crazy golf, watching live music, quiz and game nights, alongside the recent theatre trips
The group actively welcomes new members and will continue to meet on the following dates throughout 2019: Friday 22nd February, Thursday 21st March, Thursday 25th April, Thursday 23rd May and Thursday 20th June. Further dates for the later half of 2019 will be confirmed in due course.
