service users from the woodmill being presented with a cheque from MASS

The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) was delighted to receive a cheque from The Motor Accident Solicitors Society (MASS) on 11th January at BIRT’s service ‘The Woodmill’ situated in Cullompton, Devon.

The Executive Director of MASS, Jane Loney, presented the cheque for £9,640 to The Woodmill’s Service Manager Emma Clarke. MASS’s chosen charity for 2015/16 is BIRT and MASS recognises the invaluable work that the Trust do for people who have been affected by road traffic accidents.

MASS is a non-profit making organisation formed in 1991 to promote the efficient and effective provision of legal advice and to represent the interests of road traffic accident victims. A large amount of the money was raised by members of MASS through their gala dinner in Manchester in October 2015 where some fabulous prizes were on offer.

Emma Clarke from The Woodmill said: “BIRT is delighted to have been awarded this very generous donation from MASS. It will make a big difference to the men and women that BIRT support nationally and is gratefully received.”

Jane Loney from MASS added: “The Motor Accident Solicitors Society named BIRT as their official charity for 2015-2016 and, so far, we have raised £9,640. I am delighted that we have been able to raise so much money for such a worthwhile cause and we look forward to assisting BIRT wherever possible during the year.”

The Woodmill is a specialist residential rehabilitation centre for people with an acquired brain injury (ABI). BIRT provide a network of 15 services across the UK which offer specialist rehabilitation for people with brain injuries and has been established for 25 years.
