CMSUK Awards 2019

Recognising excellence in the Case Management Profession

Jackie Skinner and Sally Britton had a wonderful afternoon at the CMSUK Awards on 13th September. It was the perfect setting to meet so many really inspiring people who are dedicated to providing the best support for their clients.

Our table was, we have to say, one of some envy as it included the amazing Claire Lomas who was the guest speaker. Claire sustained a spinal injury following a horse-riding accident. Her energy, enthusiasm, drive, and joy for life was incredible. Claire is a motivational speaker and remarkable fund-raiser. 

We were also delighted to have Su Robinson and Helen Sandell from Harrison Associates, Charlene Hughes from Boyes Turner (see Charlene's article in this newsletter), Claire's rather wonderful husband Dan Spincer and Christine Bunting from Hyphen Law, who's incredible fund-raising reached new heights this year when she trekked to Everest Base Camp - read all about it below!

A wonderful afternoon which we were delighted to support.

Trekking to Base Camp for Cerebra 

Christine Bunting's Amazing Adventure (latest adventure we should say!)

We were lucky enough to have Christine Bunting from Hyphen Law join us on our table at the CMSUK Awards (see above). Snap have known Christine for some time and we're always eager to hear her latest fund-raising adventures in aid of the wonderful charity Cerebra. We couldn't imagine how she could top her wing-walking (yes strapped to the outside of a plane!), but she did, by trekking to Everest Base Camp!

Christine battled flu, trekking that looked more like mountaineering and pretty harsh conditions, but she did it!

Brain Injury, Faith & Cultural Differences

ABIL, hosted by Irwin Mitchell


Jackie and Kamila from Snap were delighted to be able to attend the recent Acquired Brain Injury Forum for London (ABIL) event “Brain Injury, Faith and Cultural Differences” hosted by Irwin Mitchell.
 
The afternoon was filled with interesting presentations and insights about the importance of recognising cultural and spiritual needs of those with brain injuries. It was particularly good to hear some personal stories from those who are being supported through their rehabilitation.
 
At Snap, we’ve always believed that it’s important to match candidates not just based on their experience, but also on more personal attributes and it was great to hear from like-minded people.

The Children's Trust Conference

Building the Future of Childhood Brain Injury

Jackie and Kamila from Snap, were delighted to exhibit again at this year's conference; it's the third year and it just keeps getting better! The Children’s Trust assembled a truly fantastic line up of national and international experts in brain injury for their conference.
 
We particularly loved the very personal talk from Charlie Fogarty, who aged 15 suffered a severe brain injury after being hit whilst crossing the road, by an overtaking car. Prior to his accident, Charlie had finished a four-year contract at Birmingham City FC’s Academy, was trialing for Milton Keynes Dons and was well on his way to his dream of a football career.
 
Charlie’s inspiring motto is “Anything Is Possible” and this incredibly quick-witted young man proves that! Charlie has completed a degree in Sports Science, is a medal winner in two Cerebral Palsy World Cups, works with the Premier League and Football League and was honoured in the 2018 New Year’s Honours with an MBE!
