Alex Richardson Achiever of the Year Award 2019

Thu 05 Dec 2019

Once a year, Headway's members, friends and supporters come together to pay tribute to some very special people: brain injury survivors, carers, volunteers and campaigners whose personal achievements have earned the admiration of everyone around them. Their stories are moving and inspirational.

The Alex Richardson Achiever of the Year award, sponsored by Slater & Gordon Lawyers, celebrates the outstanding achievements of brain injury survivors. Our finalists represent thousands of others across the UK who day-in, day-out demonstrate admirable determination to prove that there can be life after brain injury.

Three inspirational people have been nominated for the award:

The finalists

WINNER: Nicola Evans

When Nicola was just 13-years old, she was diagnosed with a cavernoma - a cluster of abnormal blood vessels on the brain – putting her at high risk of a haemorrhage or stroke.

Peter Brown

An inspiring man from Bromley who overcame the odds to fundraise for the charity that supported him following a brain injury has been nominated for a national award.

Brooke Trotter

A Scarborough man who had a 30% chance of survival after being hit by a speeding car has been shortlisted for a national award for his efforts to help prevent accidents on the road.
