HEADWAY EAST LONDON is determined, it says, to find roles for people who have survived brain injury and is always devising ways to achieve that.
Headway’s latest project is a one-night supper club showcasing recipes by survivors of brain injury.
With assistance, Headway East London members will cook for 35 people, including items such as Sue’s Ash-e Reshteh, a winter warmer of a thick Persian noodle soup. Vegetarian and other dietary requirements will be respected if notice is given.
The diners will also receive copies of A Meal to Remember: Recipes and Stories from the Headway Kitchen, a recipe book with touching illustrations of the charity’s work.
Headway told Loving Dalston: “Diners will be greeted with a delicious cocktail, then seated at large tables accommodating multiple and mixed groups to ensure a sociable and varied evening of shared dishes.
“We secured funding to employ a full-time kitchen projects co-ordinator, and she is helping us to develop the kitchen project and working with members to come up with a menu.”
Diners can meet members, staff and volunteers and learn about projects such as the Headway lunch club.
