Just over three and a half years ago, Nick Butt was assaulted on his way home in an unprovoked attack, during a night out in Nottingham. As a result he was left with severe brain injuries and has since had to face and overcome many long and hard challenges on his road to recovery. This would not have been possible without the support of the family, friends and charities around him.

One such charity is The Wayne Howard Trust. Their Objective is:

“The relief of persons who have suffered a brain injury, their families and carers, particularly but not exclusively by the provision of advice and information, financial assistance for the purchase or hire of specialist equipment or treatment and the establishment of neurological treatment and rehabilitation clinic.”

Nick’s friends aim to support his rehabilitation in any way they can and so, the Wayne Howard Trust with whom Nick and others like Nick benefit from, is a cause close to their hearts.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the Wayne Howard Trust. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organization and will claim gift aid on behalf of the Wayne Howard Trust where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

    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”.
