André Howard

Trustee: The eldest of Isobel’s children and Wayne’s brother. Has plenty of ideas but like many no time to put them into action, thinks out of the box and likes to keep things simple and to the point. Has many interests such as technology, mountain bike riding, hiking, skiing, as well as cooking and collecting wine (when it isn’t being drank).Andre is the technologist for the charity and currently maintains the many aspects of the charity website as well as the original appeal fund site ( and provides technical assistance where needed. And like his Mum is 100% committed to the objectives and goals of the charity.


Tracy Goodwin

Trustee: Tracy is Wayne’s partner. They have been together for 23 years and have 3 sons – Jayd aged 22, Jordan aged 21, and Connor aged 18. Jordan and Connor still live at home with Tracy and Wayne, who are now grandparents to Jayd’s 2 children Oliver aged 2, and Harper aged 2 months.

Wayne requires 24/7 care and, apart from night carers, Tracy has devoted her life to looking after Wayne. Tracy is truly inspirational and Wayne would not be with us today, if not for the unstinting love and devotion she bestows on him.

Tracy rides the rollercoaster of living with someone who is a victim of an acquired brain injury. Many who contact our Charity, are given confidence, encouragement, and comfort, knowing that Tracy has found herself in similar circumstance and still offers valuable support.

Ted specializes in Neuro Physiotherapy and met Wayne in 2001. Over the years, Ted has been disappointed in and frustrated by the dwindling amount of support and treatment on offer to a great number of Acquired Brain Injured sufferers. The desire to see equal opportunities for all those sufferers prompted him to agree to be a Trustee of the charity.

Daryl Boswell

Trustee: Currently based in Southampton, I have over 20 years of experience as an Independent Financial Adviser supporting clients in London and throughout the South, with specialist knowledge in commercial finance and large case residential financing. More recently I have launched an international internet business trading vintage items and antiquities. Interests include salsa dancing, classic cars and power boat racing.

I met Isobel over 10 years ago through Salsa and took part in the initial fund raising to treat Wayne at the Schneider clinic. The cause has since developed into a trust to assist other people with acquired brain injury.

    Trethowans Sponsors Local Charity Evening

    14 February 2017

    James Gleisner, Paralegal in the Personal Injury team in Southampton, sits as a Trustee on the Board of the Wayne Howard Trust, a brain injury charity.

    On Saturday 21 January 2017, the Wayne Howard Trust held a charity salsa evening at the Solent University Sports facility on Wide Lane.  As the trust is one of the Mayor of Southampton’s charities of the year for 2016-2017, she was also in attendance at the evening. Trethowans donated the security cost for the evening (the only overhead of the event which had not been donated), meaning that 100% of the money raised went to the charity, as well as also donating a bottle of bubbly for the raffle. James comments, “The donation made for the cost of the security, as well as all the facilities and entertainment, was fantastic and meant that all funds raised could be put to good use. The Wayne Howard Trust is a fantastic local charity that are trying to work towards a goal of ensuring that any person that has suffered a brain injury gets the right follow up care to ensure that they can still thrive and live life to their full potential”.
