The fabulous new range of silver and bead earrings, which are now being sold in our shop at the centre, are designed and made by Sarah Lake who is one of our service users.
Sarah had a stroke following a road traffic accident two years ago that has left her with life altering injuries. Sarah has been coming to The Brain Charity to take part in our Tuesday morning craft classes for the last eighteen months and is a self taught jewellery maker. Initially making earrings as gifts for friends and family, Sarah has decided to use her newly acquired skills to give something back to The Brain Charity for all of the support she’s been given.
We think you’ll agree that her stunning designs are a must have item and we’re delighted that Sarah has chosen to sell her beautiful earrings to fundraise for us!

The Christie in Manchester opened its Proton Beam centre in December 2018, becoming the first hospital in the UK to offer a high-energy proton therapy service. This is huge progress as patients seeking this treatment previously had to travel abroad to receive it.
The Brain Charity’s counselling team can provide help to clients through talking therapy for issues like anxiety, low mood, stress, behaviour, relationship problems and general wellbeing. Following an initial telephone interview with Aspasia Ftenou, our Counselling Co-Ordinator, individuals will be allocated to a counsellor best suited to their needs.
