We are all very proud of our superstar adventurer fundraiser Robert Wilson who was a nominee for the Stephen McAlesse Outstanding Contribution to Headway Award at the Headway UK Awards at the Dorchester Hotel in London earlier today

During the past two decades, Robert has personally raised more than £40,000 for Oxford Head Injury Services by tackling extreme challenges across the world in support of his friend and brain injury survivor, Chris, and many other local people similarly affected. Alongside world renowned Polar explorer, David Hempleman-Adams, Robert has taken on numerous expeditions to Baffin Island and Svalbard in sub-zero temperatures, skied 100miles to the South Pole, scaled 6500m peaks in Nepal, completed three marathons, cycled from Geneva to Nice and Mizen to Malin Head in Ireland and taken on many more challenges – each time flying the flag (literally!) of Oxford Head Injury Services. Robert also organises the group’s annual golf day, delivers brain injury talks in schools and plays the Dame in the charity’s annual pantomime! We are all very proud of Robert and his very well deserved nomination.
