An auction of promises held by Bedford 41 Club and Bedford Tangents raised £4,000 for brain injury unit Headway House.

The two groups presented staff and patients with a cheque at the unit, in Bedford Health Village, Kimbolton Road, last week.

41 Club chairman Tony Bannard-Smith said: “The Headway team were very grateful to receive the money. They said it is likely to help pay for an essential update to its computer systems.”

Headway House, run by the Headway charity, offers therapy and tuition for patients with non-degenerative acquired brain injury - the most common cause of acquired disablility, often caused by road traffic accidents, assaults, falls and strokes. For more details, go to
