The Brain Charity staff went on a team building day to help redecorate Asylum Link's reception rooms in Wavertree recently. Asylum Link is an organisation that assists asylum seekers and refugees in Liverpool and raises public awareness around these issues. Two of our team, John and Moira, took some time out to talk to a few of their members.
No, PJ Paralysis is not the name of a neurological condition. But it is a real problem. It’s to do with your PJs, and with spending too much time in them! If you are in hospital, you need to try and get out of bed more often.

Hello my name is Tracy and I’m a volunteer at The Brain Charity. I volunteer as a library assistant and my main job is putting together information packs that we send out to people. I also update files on the computer and scan books for the online library. I sing with The Brain Charity choir and I enjoy it when we sing to the public at events. I like shopping, eating out and listening to music, my favourite holiday is going to Blackpool with my mum.
Enjoy to knit or crotchet? Then come along each Wednesday afternoon to "Knit & Natter" with us! This free group meets from 1.30pm in the café area at The Brain Charity. It doesn't matter what your skill level is - you don’t even have to be able to follow a pattern!
The Brain Charity will soon be checking its Christmas card list, checking it twice, as it’s time to find out who’s been naughty or nice. For all you Elfish Presleys, rebellious reindeers and trendy tinsel heads, or even if you are just tired of the same old boring, common festive cards out there, have your card stand out from the mundane rest and dare to be different.
At our little town of Brainyhem, we have decided to get all winter wonderland wacky this year, with our radical range of far out, festively funky, quirky Christmas cards. To get yours for just £2.49 a pack, which all goes to a great cause, jingle your bells down to The Brain Charity, or let it snow, let it snow, let it snow and buy online here (for £3.99 a pack incl. postage & packing).
