Shamima Kanum Ali has moved on from Headway to train as an Occupational Therapist at Southampton University. Shamima had been with Headway for 3 years, first as a volunteer and then working as a Session Support Worker. Her cheerful attitude and friendly manner were appreciated by all of us. The staff took her out for High Tea at the Tenth hole in Southsea and she received many tributes from Service Users and Carers.
She promised she will be back for Christmas lunch and will continue as a volunteer in holidays- so we’ll be holding her to that!
